Okay, I'm finally getting around to entering this! :D For the 'All Other Breeds' category, my poor Tessa is an absolute mess at the moment. Her sister had such a typical molt, looking a bit rough but not too bad otherwise. Tessa, on the other hand...

Editing because I have better pictures now. I hope that's okay!

Poor thing was trying to sun bathe. Her pins must be really sensitive, because she'd go down and then hop right back up after just a few seconds. :hmm

The other birds are frightened (notice Rowena right behind her :lol: )

Tessa, herself, isn't too thrilled, either. :eek:

I hope that isn't too many pictures. I couldn't decide which one best showed how pitiful she looks right now. :lol: :oops:
Poor Tessa, she looks miserable!
