    My roosters are currently molting and they are usually aggressive birds and they gradually getting "wimpy". When they molt do the do that or are they just losing their "gameyness"

    When birds moult it hurts them. Some birds get mean, some get wimpy. Usually though, after the moult is over, and the new feathers are all grown in, they will go back to their normal behavior. If you want to see what you can do to help them through the moult faster, you can read an article on my blog HERE . Good luck!
