    How long before he moults?

    I have had my budgie Skooter for about two months and I was wondering if you think he is about to moult? I am starting to see some pin feathers on the top of his head, but just a little bit. Sometimes I can't really tell they are there, but other times I can. Is he about to moult? How long do you think it will take before he starts moulting?

    It kinda depends. And scratching isn't the greatest idea. The moult is extremely painful for the bird. And when you touch the pin feathers it hurts very much. From the time a budgie is born it probably takes about one -three months to get to the 1st moult. For your bird i would probably say one -two months. So i think your on the right track.
