shedding...

In my experience with parrots-they are shedding feathers as we shed our hair...If there is no bold part -its normal...seasonal shedding...

Loss of feathers
by: Celeste

Hi there,

My budgie was going through this last year. Im pretty certain they are just malting as birds do that at least once a year. What season is it at the moment?
Also, if you notice little black things on your birds head thats a great indication they are malting, as they are the new feathers coming through.

If you seem in doubt though, i would go to an avian vet.
