Moult and Millet

Further to my previous post on their spring moult, Dalai has really been stringing his out. Granted he did have a break in the middle, but maybe if he had not, he would have got over it all much quicker!
He seems less grumpy now though not quite back to his usual socialising levels. His flying has improved with him feeling confident enough to make wider & wider laps of the room. That said, only a few days ago he dropped yet another flight feather; he had just had a fly then went back into the Villa & had a mad moment where we all looked at him wondering what was going on, but it turned out the feather was loose & he was just jiggling about to release it.
Dalai’s feather loss
To celebrate leaving the bulk of the spring moult behind, I cracked open the millet. I usually only sneak a millet bobble to individuals at odd moments, so they were a bit surprised to see a few two-inch sprays dotted about. They soon got over the shock & all tucked in.
