👋 me again! Sorry 😐
So milo seems to be have his first moult, I can feel new feathers under his ones when I scratch him, his a bit grumpy and we are finding feathers everywhere, my question is I’ve read this happens anytime after 6 months old can this happen early or was we told incorrectly how old he is,? We was told he was 12 weeks old when we got him so that would make him 5 and a bit months old.

thanks guys x

Aww dear Milo, don't worry about it , yes I guess it is an early moult and yes they often feel a bit grumpy.

Although a different bird my parrotlet had her first moult at about 6 months also..
She was a very grumpy sassy little thing but she's got better with each moult.

Both my parrotlet and african grey are moulting at the moment and i am finding feathers everywhere, i picked up a handful total of smaller feathers from my greys cage yesterday! 😂

😂 it’s amazing how many they lose! I thought something was wrong at first until I felt the little pin feathers
