Re: Quills, Quills, Quills.
Quills should not snap when bent. Usually they are very difficult to get to break and have to be bent back and forth repeatedly. Brittle quills is often a nutritional deficiency or illness or stress related. If he is not loosing quills and this brittle one was a random thing, I wouldn't worry too much yet. What foods are you feeding him? Perhaps he needs something more in his diet.
