What age did your cockatiel/s have their first molt?

According to the information the breeder told me when I got my cockatiel, he should now be 4 months old but it appears he has just today started his first molt. Google says they don't have them til 6-12 months so just wondered if anyone elses has molted early or if the breeder wasn't being 100% honest about the age.

Re: What age did your cockatiel/s have their first molt?

When I got BB he was 4.5 months old. It took about four more months before he started to strip and get his adult clothes on him.
