Sapphire is going through a moult right now. He only has 1 flight feather on one wing and none on the other which is making flying hard for him. He was cut either at the Petco where we got him or before he got to petco. Sprite has grown back all of his flight features and wing feathers twice now. Will sapphire wing ever regrow?
I'm so upset at the pet store for doing this.in all my years of owning budgies I have never gone through this ?

I'm sorry Sapphire's wings were over-clipped.

As Randy indicated, there is no way to know if the flight feathers will grow in properly until after Sapphire molts.

You may wish to talk a look at the information in this thread and consider talking to the management of the store where you purchased Sapphire.

I'm closing this thread now as your question has been answered.

When I got my budgie Rio from Petco her wings were clipped. The girl that takes care of them said she had clipped the wings but she did seem very knowledgeable...sadly I know this varies from store to store. It took some time but Rio's feathers grew back in!
