Feathers - at last!

So - he's growing a feather - two actually, on each side.

No real questions - I've been working on his recalls despite the lack of flight. I just wanted to express my general excitement.

Congratulations!! I'm in exactly the same position as you - I can't wait for Pony to grow her wing back in. But I think we might have missed out on it happening this summer. Next year, I hope :)

I remember when Einsteins flight feathers all grew back. I'm still in awe whenever he stretches his wings.

I get excited watching that little blue feather reach its way out to meet the one on the other side.

I can't wait for my first view of a complete wingspan!
