Chika, my green cheek conure. She is my first bird.
This is my first bird so I don't know much about molting...
She is a green cheek conure and in random places where she chould have vibrant color, you can see little gray feathers. It's all over, her back and head mostly. I see one little pin feather. I have found maybe 6 feathers in the past week. She has 4 toys in her cage, swapped one to three times a week. I know birds who are molting are grumpier, and today she bit my sister 5 times when she tried to pick her up. I'm 99% sure she's molting, but like I said she's my first bird. She's close to a year old now.
