    The severity of a molting can vary from year to year.

    From the 2013 Worse Molt thread:

    This is Tutu and she needs to be entered into the Frizzle catagory. (she is actually a frazzle) I have more pictures of her sadness if you need them. This is her recovery from molting, you can see her new feathers on her chest. lol
