Hey all! I have a few questions...... My 14 week old magpies are going through their first molt, how long does this typically last and is it normal for them to look a little "mangey"? Also, is this a good time to start my girls on layer pellets?
Molt generally lasts from four to fourteen weeks. Protein is very important. It is necessary for growth of tissue and bone like feathers. The most common source of protein are, Scrambled eggs, sunflower seeds, cat food, and dog food. I am not sure if you should start layer feed. Birds tend to stop laying during molt.
