Mama Feathers

9 Nov

Do you see that pile of feathers that looks like Sky grabbed Mama?

Mama Phoenix

She’s molting!  I swear, with all the feathers she’s got sitting on the table and all the feathers I’ve swept up, I don’t know how she’s not totally naked.  Hopefully, she’s not going to do a full molt.

Usually, they molt based on changes in the number of hours of light they receive.  I suppose bringing her into the house with the bright light on in the evening might have done it.  I’m sure it was also a big stress moving inside with the dog and cats for roommates.  Stress can trigger a molt also.

Other than losing feathers, she’s doing well and seems content in the house.
