If he is molting it is normal for him to loose his feathers. Even the long ones on his tail!

That's a pretty feather by the way, I would keep it.

Looks like he's moulting! It's perfectly normal, he'll grow a new one soon

I've kept every single one of Mallorn's tail feathers! They're pretty!

Charlotte,

Please take the time to read all the information in the links I provided both on your profile page and in your introductory thread.
You will learn a great deal about budgies and their care by doing so.
Additionally, you'll learn what is considered "normal" as well as some things that are not.

In the meantime, take a look at this link regarding molting:

Best wishes!
