---A couple of months, a little shorter for a light molt, a little longer for a hard molt. Are you supplementing the diet with animal protein? A little offered twice a week during the molt tends to speed things along. And does the bird have access to sunlight/full spectrum lighting?You mentioned winter chewing. Often the cause is nothing more than dryness of heated air also drying out the bird's skin.
