Sunny days, mistings & moults

Cagney, Bezukhov & Phineas have been moulting recently.   The boys are usually more inspired to get wet during a misting if the day is sunny &, ideally, warm.  Over the last few weeks we have had a sunny day here & there, so I have got out the celery leaves & given them a misting.

Because Bezukhov has had sticky, syrupy medicine stuck to his chin & cheek feathers, I think he was more motivated than the others to throw himself into getting wet.  He certainly had a good dance in the celery leaves & got very wet.  Unfortunately, the sticky feathers still remain but at least all his other feathers have been refreshed.
