Why Does My Bird Molt?

If you are new to birds or if you have had birds for a long time, one has to wonder why does my bird molt (lose its feathers every couple of months and new ones grow in).  Every bird or parrot molts….it is just a question of when.  Depending upon the species, hormones and the age of the bird, all molts are different.

Below is a link (PDF file) for an interesting article I found written by Dr. Susan L. Clubb for Pet Age Magazine entitled “Molting 101”  Also this article explains some of the different types of feathers a parrot has.  My Amazon “Kiwi” has eyelashes which are called Bristles.  Amazons are known to have Bristles.
