Liz,Good grief, poor Shelby, and Sunny is nearly as bad, poor babies.... how did they cope? How did you cope?
Yes, Shelby's been pretty miserable. They are now dealing with all the pinfeathers and as you can see from today's pictures with all the pin-feathers they have a long way to go before they are going to be back to normal.Holy crap thats a heavy molt! and i thought Freki was molting bad... the poor little buggers must have been so itchy! it actually looks painful
I agree about the birds needing extras during molting times!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.
Shelby and Sunny asked if Aries would be the President of their Miserable Molters Club since he's been through more than one and this is their first time experiencing one this severe!Poor Shelby! Isn't it just awful to see our little ones go through this. Your darling little sweety is definitely in good company with Aries; they should get started on their miserable moulters club. What a relief to see all those pin feathers coming in.
Great job in looking after Shelby! He's a lucky budgie to have such an awesome mommy! :hug:
Arlene, I've been picking up the feathers from the carpet and have a how container full of them now!You must have had a sea of yellow fluff. They feel better when they have a special goodie to get them through it.
shelby you should get your momma to buy you a hat. you can cover up that bare patch and all the girlies will love it. your friend charlie.
