    When they molt do the typically lose their tail feathers first or does it vary? I am so afraid there is something wrong with my best roo because he is losing tail feathers left and right.

    Mine usually loses his tail feathers first - or at least that's what's noticed first.

    I'm sure yours is just in a molt - it's that time of year.
