    My one BR is going through a mini-molt? I guess that's what it's called when they don't loose all their feather a once. She is about 9-10 mnths old and does not seem very happy and what worries me the most is she is not eating very much. I offer sunflower chips, peanutbutter bird suet, boiled eggs, salmon and wet cat food in addition to layer pellets to encourge her to eat. She is not laying.

    How long will it take her to complete her molt?
