    I flicked through his feathers and looked under his wings. I didnt see anything but to be honest i didnt know what i was looking for!
    How do i check him out for mites, and make sure he is just ok in general? Is there anything else i should do?
    Thanks :)

    You're looking for little bugs and eggs, I'll draw what to look for.
