My 20 year old ring necked parakeet loves to bath in his water dish several times a day. For the last week he has not bathed at all that I can tell. He started molting around this time which is late for him, but his feathers are all in now. I've never seen this behavior before. He's eating, drinking, defacating, moving and sleeping just fine. Ideas?
