Can you tell me how long my Severe Macaw will go through this first baby molting ? I got my Severe Macaw when he was 2 months old . I have hand fed my little baby macaw until almost six months .
For the past 3 weeks he has been loosing tail feathers , having a bazillion pins and shedding lots of that white powder , grey and white fluffs .
He is uncomfortable and so am I . I have been spraying him once a week with water , he does not like baths . I feel helpless ?
Can you help me with this ? How long does it last ???
