Spring molting

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Is there such a thing as spring molting. They have feathers all over the cage. Is spring molting shorter than fall. And how long does it take for them to have a new set of feathers.

How old are your birds, some go through a partial neck molt in the spring.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

It shouldn't be a full body molt at this time of year, do you provide extra light to your birds? During a full molt they will lose tail feathers and wing feathers, a partial will only be around the head and neck and will be shorter.
