: my bird has a lot of pickle things growing in his feathers. I think they are new feathers, what to do. He scratches all the time
I think you may be referring to new feathers (they look like long strands rice). If your bird is a solitary bird, he may need some help with the ones on his head. When the feathers are long enough, I usually gently roll the tip to remove the waxy substance and reveal the new feather. If done right your bird will be grateful.
You should also take care to give your bird a bath or spray him daily while he is moulting. That will calm the itchiness.
