    My M2 is growing new crest feathers and they coming pretty
    quick. I believe I have read that some Cockatoos can Molt
    twice a year.

    Have a suggestion for you. Go to and join the
    forums there. You will be amazed with the amount of
    knowledge these people have there. These are people who have
    all firat hand experiences there. I started out on this
    forum, but quickly went to mytoos. A welth of information at
    your disposal. And the people are very helpful with just
    about everything you would need to ask.

    I am so glad I did. You should too.

    Thanks , Brian
