    Who else has winter molters? Our EE started, then there were BR feathers everywhere. She is nearly naked.

    Any additives we can / should provide to help?

    We have two Blue Rocks that are in a hard molt. You can up the protein a bit to help them out.....

    I had one RSL start molting and the others decided it was the "in" thing to do and followed suit. Like the other poster said, extra protein will help them get through it.
