OMG is my budgie molting, or balding?
Hi ya'll, my budgie is 4-5 months, and we have seen him slowly molt, just a tiny bit here and there. A few new feathers at a time for the past 1-2 months. Today I came home and there were WAY more feathers than usual around his cage. When he ruffled his body moments ago, I saw about 7 feathers fly out. He had a weird feather area on the back of his head when I got home today. About 3-4 hours later (now) he has a couple huge bald spots on his head!!!! I did not think this was normal! I've never seen it before. Is this normal? He couldn't be pulling them out could he? All I've heard is that happens when they're stressed, or don't get attention. Is that what's happening? I'm just so concerned. Any advice would be appreciated. You guys always come through with the best answers for me. Thank you!
