Re: molting

It can last a few months. My ringneck Chico is in full molt right now. He hasn't wanted to be near anyone in a few weeks. I mist him daily. That is the only time he cares to be near me.

Re: molting

It really seems like they are molting all the time. Rosie has molted 2 times so far in 2011. I am sure it is a pain for them as well as us.
