    Hey guys! I'm new here, and my little p'let's name it Fletch. She's about 4 months old. My question is, how long is considered normal to molt for?

    My +2 year old parrotlet has been molting for so long now, and his head STILL has pin feathers. I know I am supposed to help pick them off, but he wont let me go near them. I give him water to bathe in, but he doesn't seem to want to very often to make a difference! And he freaks out when I try...
