A blog about my beautiful budgies.

A long-drawn-out moult

It was not that long ago (December/January) when Dalai had a problem with uneven wings, due to moulting out some flight feathers.  Less than two months later he is going through another moult which has been going on for several weeks.  He only needs to have a shake & feathers fall off him.  Now he has pin feathers on his head.  He has been quite grumpy.

    Poor Dalai!

    I have noticed that with the yellow-based budgies, you notice the pin feathers so much more!
    George recently had a bad moult and he looked almost bald above his cere for about 4 days.

      That’s a good point! Though I remember Phineas looking pretty bad on occasions, but I think that would be when he had blood feathers where the red contrasted with the rest of his white head.

    Poor Dalai! He looks remarkably cheerful given all those pins …
