My budgie, River, is about 3 or 4 months old, and I know he is going through his first molt. About a week ago, I noticed a big feather at the bottom of his cage with a little blood at the tip... Ill share a picture to show you.

I had his wings clipped about a month ago, for training purposes, but I am allowing them to grow back.

Is he going to be okay?

Sorry, I forgot to attach the pictures. Sorry the picture of the missing flight feather isn't that great. But you can see he has one long feather on the right and is missing the left one.

Yes, River is going to be fine.
It is important that he lose and regenerates all of his flight feathers over time through his molting processes.

I'm glad to hear you are allowing his flight feathers to grow back. :thumbup:
