Our new boy is quarantined of course. But I wonder if he is itchy or just that males preen more? His picture is on the end of my Photos thread.
He has clipped wings, and is quite a big fluffy boy. Do they get itchy when feathers are growing back in?
He seems to be preening more than my Bluebird. Could this be nervousness or a male thing, or could he have mites? I cannot see any sign of anything untoward, and I do not want to take him to a vet until he has had a few days to settle as he is eating and active etc.
I wonder if I am just imaging it, being a nervous new mum?!
