How Long Does Molting Last?
I've only had my green pacific parrotlet Jude for 3 1/2 months or so. His breeder told me he would start his first molt when he was approx. 10 weeks old. Jude did start molting a few weeks ago, and my question is: how long does their first molt last? He seems to have had 2 waves of it, molting for a while, then it seemed to stop off for a but, then now it has come back in full swing. He's looking pretty ragged and has been a bit of a butt-munch, I think it's because he's not feeling too well during the molt (I read once that Alex, the talking african grey parrot who could talk told his keeper he felt crummy when he was molting).
Anyway, if anyone could help me out, it would be much appreciated.
