My Ringnecks first molt
Posted 30 August 2011 - 03:53 AM
Eddie is going through his first molt right now and he seems very agitated. He is flapping his wings, squawking and picking at himself at times. He is kind of getting bare on his chest but I can see the pin feathers coming through so I know that he is not plucking. My cockatiel and conure do not behave like this when they are molting so I was wondering if this is normal or if something more serious could be going on?
Any help is appreciated!
This is what his chest looks like now..

Bathing daily should help, as well as adding in some aloe vera into his bath water. An increase in foods with vitamin A and E may also be beneficial.

There's a gel form and a liquid form. I haven't bought the gel form so I don't know how well it dilutes.
