Sunny days, mistings & moults
8 November 2014Posted by on
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.
