Carrion Crow Feathers snapping at the ends

  • I rescued the guy months ago (no, I'm not locking him out of the house to fend for himself because he will get killed by the local cats and no, I'm not turning him in and putting him through a lot of trauma. Sue me) and yes he did get the strength to fly away and went missing for weeks. Then he came back and some of his feathers seemed to be snapping at the ends. He's well fed, well watered and is very well looked after. He is still a fledgling so is this normal for the "teenage" stage of his life? (like puberty?)
