Default Klink's injury

Hi, today I let klink out for a fly but he was not flying properly. It seems like he pulled out a wing feather while preening which might be effecting him. When he flies with Schultz, he flies much slower and lower than he used to, he almost hit a chair. Now he can barely keep up with Schultz and his flying sounds like a turbo jet, and he tires out very quickly. I kept him in the cage so that he will not come out and hurt himself. He seems all happy as if nothing is wrong but doesn't seem to be hiding any pain or discomfort either. I let Schultz fly but hear klink scream of wanting to come out too. Any advice? Should I continue to let him relax for a few days? Or is that not the problem and I should take him to the vet
Thank you

Sorry to hear that Klink is having a problem. The loss of one feather even a large wing feather is unlikely to cause the symptoms you are seeing. How is his breathing is it labored or faster than normal? If he were my bird I would take him to the vet, there could be something internal going on that is not apparent to the eye and the difficulty he is having is the sign that something may be wrong. Could he have injured his wing, has he had a night fright?

His breathing is normal up until when he flies since his wings don't seem as strong as they were the day before. I confirmed with others in my house and they said that they were not by the cage the night before nor did they hear anything to cause him to have had a night fright; plus we don't have any other pets that could've been lurking around at night to have scared him. As of now I'll look for a proper avian vet to take him to.
Thank you

Please let us know how Klink is doing after his Avian Vet appointment.

I'm wishing him a full and speedy recovery!
