I recently adopted two young Pastelface Lutino Cockatiel’s. When I got them, the person told me they were 2 months old. I’ve had them about a month, so they would be 3 months, supposedly.

I can tell they are on the young side, but they recently started molting. There are feathers all over and I can see feathers coming off them. Plus, they are preening like crazy and new feathers are appearing on their clipped wings. (I did not clip them).

I read that Cockatiel’s don't go through their first molt until 6 months plus in age. Could they be older then? Or perhaps not molting? I definitely think they are molting
