Hi there. I am new to this forum but have a question. I have two Rosella Parakeets, Busby is a Cinnamon of about 5 years old, and Alice is a Crimson of about 4 years old. I bought them about 18 months ago and they are kept in an aviary in the garden as a bonded pair and are, therefore, not finger tame.
Alice started a moult a few weeks back, but I am concerned that it is going on for too long, and she almost looks as if she's been "bleached" as there is so little colour to her frontage now, whereas it is usually a beautiful vivid red.
The weather has been muggy, then raining, so I don't know whether that is what is dragging it out, or whether there is something more sinister going on.
Can anyone offer any suggestions?
