|Message:||Do you know about molting? Birds naturally molt, dropping and replacing feathers every year. This is completely natural, noting to worry about. Just make sure he's eating a healthy, varied diet, and feed him a little bit more protein than usual. He'll be fine.
If you know how he molts, and this is NOT regular molting; and especially if his feathers appear abnormal or misshapen in any way, call your vet and have him checked over.
