    Lol... Ashy is what we fondly call a duck butt here. It is so funny when this happens but with Ashy and her long tailfeathers she must look too funny.

    I hope both Ashy and Socrates get over there Molts soon. Lots of bathes help there skin. Our vet recommends Organic Red Palm oil for birds, it is for us Parronts and is great for birds, dogs and cats too. Tikki my daughters Conure gets a pea sized dab of it everyday and he licks it off my daughters finger. It softens the skin and helps the feathers come in.
    Fly Free Boomer, we will forever love you.

    Aww poor little Ashy! Socrates had the same thing, his tail was really long and my partner was even commenting on how long it was getting previously, but now with the moulting he has pulled most of the tail feathers out and its small again, and he looks even smaller himself poor little thing! Sammy I think you are right maybe it is the climate. It has definitely been unseasonably hot where I am, when usually its pretty mild and cooler.

    Ringnecks must really cop the moulting more than other birds! I hope it doesnt last too long.

    Thanks Deanna for the recommendations! I remember you mentioning the red palm oil previously in some other threads too. We have been regularly bathing socrates to help relieve him a bit as he must feel uncomfortable and itchy with all this moulting and new feathers growing. I'll have to look for this red palm oil though.
