Hi Craig
First of all what kind of diet is Alfie on ? Has he access to a avian uv light (this is needed for vitD to process the calcium needed for healthy bones and for oils etc for feathers )
Does he get outside at all (safely caged or harnessed of course)
Also do you cover him and for how many hours does he get undisturbed sleep ?
Answer these questions and I'll try to help more x x

Ps I'm the proud mummy of 2 pluckers x x
