Errol is going through his first molt!
I thought it was time I updated on how Errol is doing! Currently going through his first molt!
This is a photo of Errol when I first brought him home
And this is him now

As you can see he's looking a little rough around the edges.

He loves bathing though so I think that is helping

Beautiful baby turning into a beautiful young man. Yes, water help's, so if he likes bathing let him have at it. This is a good time to be giving egg/egg food, and flax seed, for help with new feather growth...:)

It's always great to closely follow the changes they go through, your Errol is growing up beautifully! :)

What a wonderful update, your little man is stunning! His colours are gorgeous :)

He is stunning, very nicely coloured, and has that star quality that befits his name. Looking forward to seeing more of this cute guy around the forums.:budgie:

Wow, Errol is such a beautiful color :) Cute too!

Thanks everyone! I will look at getting him flax seed and such to help. He gets the bath put in his cage twice a day. He gets very upset when I remove it.
His colouring on his face has started to go very yellow.
He is also getting very agitated with his moly I think, his personality is much more angry!!

Errol is such a lovely boy! I think he looks wiser after his experience!

Beautiful boy!

They will start to lose some of their feathers which will be replaced with new ones, they may be a bit more tired than usual and grumpy.

Oh Errols molt was quite obvious. He's very grouchy and hole starte molting when I went on holiday. Errol went on holiday to my parents (met their cockatiel who is 24 years old!) he went looking like the first picture and within a week looked like the second picture.
The reason I knew was he flapped and hovered in one spot a lot, plus he was angry, more obsessed with his bath and his colours changed. Oh and lots of pin feathers on his face and cheeks.

He is absolutely gorgeous!

This is a better picture of him. He will venture out of his cage now with encouragement, but prefers to walk everywhere than fly!
