Default Molt

So, I think Pauly is molting. I've been finding these little feathers everywhere, but also noticed a whitish area on his chest. Is this normal looking for a molt??





And don't worry I will be replacing those perches. Just needed to wait for the paycheck

Hi Sarah, looks normal to me. Deeks is moulting too at the moment and I swear I could re-feather another whole budgie every time I sweep! The little white feathers are the soft down that sits under the coloured ones. As the new pin feathers come through they will get hidden again. Just as long as you are not seeing bald patches or bleeding I think Pauly is fine.

Yes, this is all normal for a moulting bird.

Also, I know you want to get more birds (eventually) but it's a very good idea to make sure you have a good savings set aside so that if you need to take your birds to the vets you can. Not being able to afford vet care is a very common thing we come across so please make sure you have the means to take your birds to an avian vet should the need arise.

Thanks!
Yes, I am a big planner, and never jump into something without making sure I can take care of all aspects. I won't be getting anymore birds anytime soon, but when I do, trust me I'll make sure I can afford it..
I am sure that's a common issue you see. When you get any kind of animal its a commitment. Not only an emotional commitment, but financially as well.
