    Gwen, a lot of them are going thru a molt now. Mine just
    started getting in some new tail feathers in the last few
    weeks. My Greenwing just finnished a heavy molt and now its
    the Amazons turn. It looks like a down pillow exploded in side
    his This is normal. You won't see "bald spots"
    but you will see lots of feathers around. Dave
