    Is my bird moulting?

    When I was scriting my pearl whiteface tiels head I felt something spiky. I can't really see the feather's that come out because of her greyish white colourations. I also spotted a few small feathers at the bottom of her cage. So is she moulting?

    How do I tell when my budgie is moulting?

    I'm not sure how to tell if my birds are moulting or not. There was a period of time where there were a lot of small feathers around their cage (and in the floor near it), then it sort of slowed down. Now it seems to have picked up again. Maybe my male budgie is actually moulting? He shook his...

    Is this “moulting & conditioning” formula any good?

    Hello! So I went to my local pet store today and found this moulting and conditioning formula by kaytee (see attached photo). My own two budgies are moulting so I am wondering if this is safe or if anyone uses the same thing. I searched up the ingredients and attched it to this thread. I am...

    Budgie teenager phase?

    Hi guys! I have had my two budgies for about 3 months now, and they are both around 8 months old. I have one male and one female, the male named Kiwi and the Female named Winter. Currently I can tell that they are both in a molt as there are a lot of dropped feathers at the bottom of the cage...

    Is my budgies forehead okay?

    Hey everyone, Can someone please reassure me that sky’s forehead is just normal moulting? It’s never been this bad before and I have also noticed that she has many pin feathers on her wings. Her tail feathers have came out as well and I am guessing that new ones will grow back soon. I have seen...

    Food intake during moulting?

    My budgie is going through a moult right now, and I was wondering if I should keep her diet the same or increase it? Right now, she gets 1.5 teaspoons of seed, around a teaspoon of spray millet, veggies for breakfast and dinner, and there's always Roudybush pellets available in her cage. Should...

    First Time Bird Owner

    Hi all! I'm a first time bird owner with a hand-tame lutino cockatiel called Bambino, coming up to 6 months old. He bonded with me really quickly and now loves my partner too. We decided not to have him clipped and he's really good at flying now, he can be a bit mischievous but he's got a...

    Molting advice?

    My pionus is almost a year and a half old, but she hasn't gone through a "big" molt, and she's not really moulting right now. She replaced some feathers in the past 1-2 months, but not as many as I would've expected. The last vet appointment was about 2 months ago. She was in good shape for the...

    Sleepy Bird and Droppings

    First of all SORRY FOR THE SPAM We haven't kept birds for a long while and when we did there wasn't anyone to do a whole lot of research so they unfortunately would pass before their time. So with the two birds we have now I may be a little paranoid but I want to make sure my babies are okay...

    Is my bird moulting?

    My ringneck is supposedly around one and a half years old, and we got him around a week and a half ago due to him having to be rehomed as fast as possible. Frankie (now accepting new name suggestions too) has been itching like crazy! He loves his spray showers and seems to calm down a little...

    Kakarikis Feathers

    I own 2 kakarikis, female and male (female shown in my profile picture!) but my male seems to have very ugly, to say feathers. He was like this ever since I purchased him and I think he might be moulting. They are about 1 year old do kakarikis moult when they are 1 year old or if not is there...

    First moult

    Hi guys, So after having Toki and Pickles for a while now, I think they've just started their first moult. Toki in particular is losing feathers at an alarming rate, though there are no bald patches, and I'm worried they may have mites. Call me paranoid (and I may well be) but I've never had a...

    Is his face normal?

    I have a two budgies and one of them is moulting. His face looks rather dark and I'm unsure if this is normal or not as these are my first budgies. He's acting lively and happy and he's not acting unusual. Is this just because he's moulting?
