yup, he's a bit cranky and bit me hard a few times but other than that seems completely fine. feathers maybe looking a little rough haha having a nice bath seems to make him feel much better, and he has indeed been eating more but getting new feathers would take up a ton of energy so I totally get itI love how he holds one foot with the other! Molting can be rough, but it happens all the time. Birds usually eat more during molts--I know my budgie boys really do! Enjoy your new hobby of feather collecting!!
oh yeah that's actually a great idea, im not sure how I didn't think of that :0 I usually just get some laundry baskets and put it in the doorway but that's not exactly secure thank you for the suggestions! will definitely look into the curtains as well ^_^I currently use a sheer curtain hanging from one of those pressure-mounted curtain rods in one of the doorways leading to the kitchen so that light and air can pass through, but the birds cannot. I don't have a dog or cat, so maybe the addition of a dog gate to keep your dog out of the room where your precious Minky lives?
