Uneven Tail (still)

    So a while back I made a post about echo's tail feathers having malted and she only had 1 or 2 and was told they should usually be symmetrical and they do shed fully and grow back.

    Well recently her tail has come back out but it's still uneven and there are a couple of scruffy feathers. Is this something to be worried about? Doesn't affect her flight[​IMG]

    They don#t moult all the feathers in one go and a full set may take a long time to come through, as long as she is not pulling out the new ones you shouldn't worry

    I'd be inclined to give it a bit more time too. :) Tail feathers here are coming in a couple at a time.

    Okay just worried cos they came back weird and in the gap theres some scruffy looking feathers down close to the tail.

    She doesn't pluck though so no concerns there
