Shelby has been going through an extreme molt.








Shelby – April 20, 2013







Sunny – Sunday, April 14, 2013



Sunny – Saturday April 20, 2013









Sparky - April 20, 2013

Sparky has been molting too, but so far he isn't looking as rough as Shelby and Sunny.







I'm the most handsome of them all!

Oh my goodness, poor Shelby and Sunny

Thank you for sharing, I would have freaked if any my of birds looked like that. It is good to see what a bad moult looks like, and I hope none of mine ever experience it. Though I get the feeling GreyBird may be starting.

Liz,

I really didn't cope well at all when Shelby had so many bald patches and they were such a fire-engine red last weekend. I thought I was going to lose him for sure.

Thankfully, Shelby's a trooper and pulled through.

I gave Shelby and Sunny lots of Quinoa and Hard Boiled Egg to boost their protein intake which I think helped a little.
They are also getting Apple Cider Vinegar in their drinking water to boost their little immune systems.

What a good mum you are giving them those extras at moulting time. It's a great idea to feed seasonally to support their health through such a big moult.
