Molting or not?
I have a 5-6 month old budgie, and he has been losing a LOT of feathers lately. He usually loses the little white fluffy feathers with the occasional colored feather. But now he has been losing a lot of colored feathers, usually the facial ones.(They are really small and striped.) The good news is that he doesn't have any bald or bare spots on him, and he seems pretty active and acts normal. I think he is molting but I'm not sure.
Here are the things I want to know: First of all, is he sick or molting? And secondly, what kind of food should I give him to strengthen his feathers if he is molting? Thank you!
