Molting Seasons

Rosie first molt was in June of 2010, this past spring time. I see indications that she is molting again (feather loss). That means it has only been 7 months ago. Isn't this too soon??

Re: Molting Seasons

I think young birds molt more often...but I could be wrong. I seem to remember reading that somewhere. Max molted about 7-8 months apart last year.

Re: Molting Seasons

Young parrots go through a mini molt at about 5 months give or take, then have the annunal molt. With Eclectus they could have once in awhile a very heavy molt (Mojo Molt) where by they seem to take forever to complete it but otherwise go through the normal yearly molt.

Re: Molting Seasons

Rosie's first molt was pretty complete because all feathers were replaced over about 2 to 3 months except for the tail. Does that sound like a mini molt??

Re: Molting Seasons

Bella is around five months and is in the process of going through her mini-molt right now. Most of it is where her red is growing in on the top of her wings and the teal/blue on the top of her head. I have to be careful when I pet her or else I get "yelled" at!

Re: Molting Seasons

Yes they get very sensative to touch and very grumpy.
