I often put feathers like those pictured on green back in place as they just get out of place and the little barbs will catch and hold feathers. Pulling or not are options. If I find small lumps associated with the odd ball feathers, we immediately check for feather cysts that do need prompt attention. I like to list options that have worked in the past. Generally we keep show birds groomed as it takes weeks to grow new flights and tails. Breeders or pets are allowed to molt naturally unless we detect an underlying problem like a cyst. These are judgement calls based on experienced, There are as many correct answers as there are problems to be solved. The bird does not seem bothered so i see no reason to pull. Best wishes. Jo Ann

Yes, and I'm also very attentive to all my birds and do regular checks on them as well. Fortunately, I never had one to develop real lumps. The misplace of feathers is just that, there are no actual growths, cysts or anything resembling those.

That is great not to find any lumps. They are really scary, but not always a death sentence. I have never had one on a bird I bred until Jack Frost. I am so grateful We caught it early. He is a plucky chatty bird in spite of the missing wing.No lumps in any others in his line. I just can not resist their fluffy little beings. Apollo was out on my hand singing to me this AM as if he had no reason to be mad that he had to have his exam and Ivermectin yesterday. Enjoy your cuties they often make my day. Blessings, Jo Ann
