Hello! My little Moonie boy seemed to have finally finished his first moult about three weeks to a month ago and it seemed to have taken forever. I was glad to have my sweet little boy back, but then he started getting more irritable and today he has lost more feathers, including three larger ones from his wings and tail. Is it common for budgie moulting to take a brief hiatus? I have also read about winter feather picking because of less humidity in the air.

Does anyone have any ideas about what's happening to my little boy?

Moulting is a tricky thing to figure--some birds seem to always be moulting in small areas, others moult in huge amounts a few times a year. Now that he did his "major moult", it's likely for the next couple of months he'll go through a number of smaller moults. I would venture to guess that as long as he has no other symptoms and isn't stressed (moulting can be prolonged by stress) then he is just fine and is simply losing a few more feathers here and there :)
