Leon broke a feather!

so long story short.... leons new flight feather was almost grown in and just now he decided that it would be a great time to fly off the tree and flap around on the floor trying to fly away from me and break the feather......

the feather is nearly grown in and so its not bleeding.. its just hanging there. i cant catch him to save my life, as i have tried before he broke the feather. on sunday i am bringing him to get his nails clipped so the lady could probably help with what ever needs to be done. i think our new rule is that there will be no tree time when new flights are coming in -__-

what do i do now? i have taken out all the toys that he goes crazy with out of his cage so nothing more can happen...



he lifted his wing so i took the chance to get a pic... again its not bleeding, thats just from when the feather was coming in

i did talk with casey she said that if its not bleeding its fine. she thinks it broke at the root and it will eventually come out or he will take it out.

i couldnt catch him to save my life, so i will see that happens. its not bleeding or bothering him and he isnt coming out for a while, so he should be fine
