Hello! After reading up on both the molting FAQ and the miserable molting thread I wanted to be certain that this was because of my budgies molting. He's at least around six months old.
I saw a tiny bald spot on his head this morning and realized he'd started molting because of his pin feathers. When I came home to work I noticed the spot had gotten bigger and was curious about the colour as well as seeing him scratch his head with concern he was irritating it. As a first time budgie owner and being naturally anxious, I wanted to be sure on whether this was more natural than I thought. Thanks in advance!
Thank you, thank you, thank you for this thread!!! My budgies recently started molting in the exact same way except they are very cheerful... I kind of meant the feather loss. I knew pretty much for sure that its a molt, but this is very reassuring and helpful! Thanks Faerybee as well.
