Hey. The "white things" on his head are probably pin feathers. New feathers that grow in are covered in a white sheath. The ones that he can reach he can preen himself, but on his head he'll need a little help. Just gently scratch his head, and you'll see the white coming off like dandruff. He'll probably enjoy it, they're itchy. The larger feathers you see in the bottom may just be normally molted feathers. Just watch him. If you see any bald patches, then he may be plucking. But most likely he's molting. I think Skittles molts more than any of my other birds. He never has any bald or thinning spots, but the floor of his cage nearly always has a bunch of feathers on it. As far as bathing, you can continue what you're doing. Some birds just aren't huge bathers.
