    Dave, yeah my guys go through their molts one right after the other. Seems like we
    have someone going through a molt all the time lol I think our miligold is the worst
    .. his little down feathers are EVERYWHERE! I just recently got a tail feather from my
    greenwing and my camelot. I LOVE finding big feathers when they molt .. it's better
    than Christmas!! :) Gwen
