quinn and spike

i have 2 new tiels the 1st one is quinn i believe he only broke his tail feathers but his wing clipping was bad he cannot fly or flutter so i,m hoping when he goes through a molt he will regain his flying abilities again

spike is another one he had a bad wing clipping but he can still fly

Aww, what cuties! Poor dears, their wings are butchered! People really shouldn't clip unless they know how - they're lucky they just broke tail feathers, not their keel bones!

They're very cute though. I like how Spike (the last photos?) has a few little pied speckles on the back of his head

I don't blame you for leaving it alone it's so hard to fix, it's best to wait for a molt. Just keep an eye on the individual stray feathers when they grow in so they don't catch them on anything or hurt themselves
