Lennie’s May Moult

Moulting Lennie

Lennie had quite a heavy moult this May.

Fortunately, I noticed quickly that he was not bothering to go down to his seed pots so held seed up to him.  He was still eating but was just too lethargic to go & get the seed himself.  Once he knew I would give him seed, he would indicate he wanted some by bending down & looking out the main door.  We did this for about two weeks.

When I was out I left millet in the cage & the wild grass helped enormously. He was looking very tatty during this time & towards the end lots of pin feathers came through on his head.

When he started going to get his own seed it was a good indication that things were returning to normal.  I think the early seed intervention helped him power through the moult.
