Hi, I was just wondering if someone could give me a hand in determining whether my budgie is having his first molt or not?
Ok so Buckbeak (my budgie not the Harry Potter character) has recently started grooming himself a lot more throughout the day. He is now coming up to about 4 months old which makes me think he is molting, that and loads of little fluffy feathers around the cage. What do budgies Do when they molt? Do the feathers come out whilst their grooming or by themselves?
I just want to make sure more than anything there's no health problems, other than more time spent grooming he's both active and interactive especially when the musics on.
Additionally, please be sure you take the time to read the Budgie Articles as well as the stickies at the top of each section of the forum. These will answer most basic questions you may have about your budgie and how to care for him.
