    Quick reply and off topic. I noticed you have those awesome cockatoos! How are those birds?

    People think I'm crazy because I'm a bird man but hey, birds are awesome!

It hurts him when he shakes his tail or knocks it against anything, so I am not sure whether we should pluck it out (which I have never done so am reluctant to try) or leave it for him to sort out. What do you think?
    If Casper's tail feather is loose and causing him discomfort, it may be best to have it removed to prevent further irritation or injury. However, it's important to have this done by a qualified avian veterinarian, as feather removal can be a delicate and potentially painful procedure if not done correctly.

    Just an fyi. This is a old thread. Casper has passed away and his owner is no longer on forum.
