Right now we have some ratty looking birds. They are all healthy, even though their looks would make you wonder. Our birds have been molting throughout the winter. They lose their feathers and regrow new ones. During the molt, egg production drops dramatically - their system is busy with other things. Even though the birds look just pitiful, they are active, eating well and just as busy as ever. And they will look lovely with a new coat of feathers shortly.
