Re: Lorikeet First Molt

It's okay-- they (parrots) do get cranky or sensitive to touch (sometimes both) when molting. Try and make sure you just keep it non-stressful and as positive as you can from HIS perspective...Treats he likes, less contact if he likes etc.

I have never owned a lorikeet- but what you described is true of many molting parrots. There are lorikeet owners on here who know much more than I do in that respect and I am sure they will chime it shortly.
