My cockatiel just had her first bath today and while preening afterward, she has TONS of white fluffy feathers flying off of her when she shakes. Is this normal?
My Kiwi went through her first molt at around 8 months. I believe their first molt is around 6-12 monthsOkay. What would the average age for cockatiels going through their first molt?
they are like teeny white feathers. it isn’t dust, but just small stringy white feathersTteok went through his first molt without me even noticing because he's a freaking dustball 24/7 - throwing puffs and bits into the air constantly. He's about to hit a year old, so I'm thinking his first REAL molt should be coming up.
He's always dusty though, and little bits of fluff shoot out from him all the time. They're just a dusty species are they little bitty fluff that seem to stick to every surface nearby?
Yeah, that's pretty normal. That's down feathers.they are like teeny white feathers. it isn’t dust, but just small stringy white feathers
Ok. Thank you! I didn’t know whether to be concerned or not because of the amount of them, but now that she’s dried off, they aren’t falling off much anymore.Yeah, that's pretty normal. That's down feathers.
