    So, two weeks ago, Lazy the Gold sexlink decided to moult... This was her lowly embarrassed self... 90% naked.



    And now this is her today. Still sad, but not as much! Probably have a whole new coat in another few weeks. Bet she'll be glad when it's over too... And with her luck. She went naked when we were having 10F weather and still have nights at freezing point! Silly birds.



    So if your birds go naked, don't worry, the feathers will come back!

    I haven't gone through the moulting thing yet. Thanks for showing what to expect!
