A blog about my beautiful budgies.

Blood feathers

Poor Bezukhov has some blood feathers.

I understand that blood feathers & pin feathers are much the same thing in that blood feathers are usually pinnies.  Pin feathers do not always have a visible blood supply though, as it can have receded but the feather still be in a waxy coating.

Blood feathers sounds more appropriate in this instance as it is possible to see the blood supply.  It looks very uncomfortable.

    Poor Professor Bezooks! He is still such a glorious colour, though.

    I feel so bad for them when they’re pin-cushions! Like everyone else said, though, he is a gorgeous boy. Good shots!

    Yes, he is a gorgeous colour. 🙂 Pinnies gradually going so he will be very, very handsome again soon.
