Default Kesha is fishing



Hello Budgie Friends!

My Kesha is around 3 month old but he cannot fly yet. I am worried about him very much. When he tries to fly sometimes he flies backwards. Maybe his wings are not big enough yet? Should I be concerned?

Do you realise that Kesha has had his wings clipped?
As his feathers naturally moult, the wing feathers will gradually be replaced by new feathers - I think that is a new primary flight feather peeping out from under his left wing.
It can take months for all clipped feathers to fully regrow.
Search for images of budgie wings and you will see what unclipped wings look like (see my birds below).
The clipped feathers will not all ‘grow back in’ at the same time, as our hair does. It’s a feather replacement and in order to keep a bird flighted, they are replaced at different times.
Uneven feather regrowth, loss of muscle tone from not flying and being clipped early before having mastered flying, can all make starting to fly again a little difficult at first.

In some cases, bird’s wings can be clipped too harshly and this can affect regrowth. Maybe another member more familiar with wing clipping can give an opinion on Kesha’s wings.

What a sweet baby! He definitely loves looking at the fish

You're been given great advice. He can't fly because his wings were clipped when he was at the pet store/breeder. Eventually his feathers will grow back and he'll learn to fly again
