Re: Concern over down feathers on wings

They all have an underlayment of down feathers covering their bodies. My BFA usually starts shedding the down feathers about now. As the temperatures rise, they don't need the additional warmth. If you feel the molt is excessive perhaps a visit to the Avian Vet is in order.
