dog attacked my quaker parrot

Yesterday, my dog attacked my 6 year old quaker parrot, Percy. There was no blood, and nothing broken. I know I dodged a huge bullet!!!! My dog, however, got several of my birds feathers and about 6 flight feathers and all of his tailfeathers.
Percy is an amazing, smart, social quaker. Is there anything I should be aware of with the re-growth of all these feathers? Is there a possibility of a change in his personality? He doesn't seem to be in any pain, but will it be painful for him as he re-grows his feathers?
Also, approximately how long does it take to re-grow feathers? I'm not sure where he's at with the molting cycle.
