If your Rocky is moulting, then I'd say it's normal.
When mine are moulting, they will even lose some feathers mid flight while having out of cage time.
Also if Rocky had a scare while in the cage or even a night fright, the increased amount of fallen feathers is also to be expected.

You're very welcome, Karina! The egg food will surely be helpful during this time.

If he's molting, I wouldn't worry . When one of my parrots was a baby and was having his first molt, one day I saw a PILE of feathers under where he was sitting. A handful (although he is so thickly feathered that you couldn't even tell by looking at him lol) but it really alarmed me since none of my birds have ever molted such a surprising amount in one sitting. Turns out everything was fine, and he's perfectly healthy to this day.

I'm sure it's okay. I thought the same thing when I saw an unusual amount of feathers, like you said within an hour (or less). But it was fine.

I've seen it happening, so don't worry! You should see the amount of feathers fallen down when both 3 of my birds are moulting!
