A blog about my beautiful budgies.

Two weeks in the life of a blood feather

Bezukhov has been going through another moult.  This time his head feathers have been completely overhauled.

Here he is at the beginning, looking fine, even though he had lost 3 spot feathers in one go:

    I feel sorry for the poor bird, that must have been really unpleasant for him. I wonder what causes such extreme moult. I had budgies but I’d never seen anything like it.

      Thank you for your comment. When I had budgies many years ago, I don’t recall any of them having such bad moults. Either my memory is bad (!) or something has changed over the years that makes them more severe.
