A blog about my beautiful budgies.

Bezukhov is moulting

For over a week now, Bezukhov has been moulting quite heavily.  Apart from the obvious sign of lots of feathers being around, he has been looking rather tatty.  His belly is mottled & not smooth like it usually is.  His little face is pinny & looks ragged.

He is also under the weather & not as perky as he usually is.  In fact, he has not bothered with his morning grumble at speaker’s corner (platform perch).  That alone alerted me to the fact that he was not quite himself.

I hope he pulls out of it soon.  The others have lost a few feathers here & there but nothing to the extent that Bezukhov has.

    Perhaps it is a protest moult against all the misbehaviour of his fellow Manoristas.

    Alas, the one leader that all budgies would naturally respect is no longer with us …
