    Forgot to comment on the broken feather. Don't worry about it.
    It will eventually drop out or he will pull it out himself if
    it's bothering him. It will be replaced as he molts and grows
    more. So long as a broken feather is not a blood feather, the
    bird will take care of it themselves. That's another thing that
    it would be good for you to research because a broken blood
    feather can be life threatening if not handled immediately. You
    need to know all about it ahead of time, have what you need on
    hand and what to do.
