Prolonged molting in TAG?
My 1.5-year-old TAG has been going through her first molt for about 4.5 months now. She seems in good health and is eating well. There are still some baby feathers on her wings and tail (as well as a few speckled here and there on her neck, head, and chest). Her neck is also covered with pin feathers, but you have to scratch her to notice them. Is this length of time normal for a molt? I've been feeding her plenty of supplemental vegetables, fruits, and protein sources (eggs, cheese, chicken meat)and have recently started giving her daily showers with an aloe juice/water mix.
(This has made her feathers exceptionally fluffy and distinct but doesn't seem to have hastened the process.)
Am I doing all the right things?
Is there anything else I might do? What is your opinion on the use of full spectrum lighting?
