    BWAHAHAHA they look so funny!! It makes me laugh every time I see them walking around and all of their neck fluff is gone!! They are also being very skittish and cranky. Is that because of the molting? I'll take pictures and post them later. Anyways, today is my last day of summer! [​IMG] Tomarrow I go back to school... WAHHHHH

    Yes, molting causes mood changes. Very moody birds. [​IMG]

    I'm expecting my girls and boys to get nasty looking in a few months. . .
