Both of our fids are moulting, which has made cleaning a TON of fun. I don't know how all those folks with bigger birdies handle it!!
Twitter (our diamond dove) doesn't really seem to notice that she is losing a ton of feathers. Maybe she doesn't care...maybe she sees making me clean as a fitting punishment for stealing her man (my husband)?
But... Earl (our budgie) has been freaked out at all these horrible things flying around. Feather on the beak? Time to freak out and make agitated noises. Feather on the foot? Flap like crazy to get it off while making agitated noises. Feather on the bars of the cage? Make agitated noises - while sitting as far away from those evil feathers as possible. While I was trying to help him get a feather off of his tail (maybe it was chasing him?), he tried landing on my lip... ouch!! I just find it odd that he would be freaked out by his own feathers??
