Tofu just finished up a very big molt, still has a few pin feathers on her head but I was checking her out and noticed her wings are alarmingly uneven? I've never seen her wings look like this? She was clipped when we got her originally about six months ago but we haven't clipped her since. Should I be calling the vet about this?

I think it may be a clipped thing. Rio was clipped when we got him back in October and is starting to show some of what you are seeing. A very unevenness in feather growth. We are also seeing some raggedness on the end of his longer feathers. I think it is because they do not lose all their feather at every molt so if they lose only some of those that are cut maybe it shows like this. We will have to see what some of the others with clipped birds have experienced.
