    Think his moults not been as harsh this time

    Other than what happened with Des, having to deal with Frodo through his moults again and his very bad moods. But don't think his molt been as harsh this time or the time before as seems like his feathers growing and opening up quite quickly. He hasnt really lost his tail at all this time. Last time his new tail feathers grew in fast so he didnt loose his tail as badly as did when took him to vet. So feel like his feathering issues more under control now. At least has seemed that way.

    Good to hear that your bird is having easier moults. That is good for your bird. How old is your bird now?

    Molting birds always are sad because some days they just have to feel awful with all the new feathers coming in. I am happy Frodo is not having issues with his molt this time. Our vet recommends giving a pea sized bite of Red Palm oil to birds, especially when they are molting. It really did help Tikki my daughters conure when he had a rough molt last year.
    Fly Free Boomer, we will forever love you.
