. She started with several flight feathers, which have already grown in. The head only had a "few" solid yellow feathers so far replacing the barred ones. Also I noticed her back feathers which are being replaced are growing in darker like a true normal color instead of 'almost' cinnamon. A few throat spots too. It was cute when I found her spots on the floor
So it is actually like little "samples" from her entire body here and there. Have you seen that before?
I'm not worried, just curious if that is typical of a budgie. It doesn't help that I am also very anxious to see her in adult feather to see whether or not the shade of her olive/violet front will change much or not.
Also... how much of the body does a budgie typically replace in their first molt? I found that my parrots replaced around 90% the first time.
