Usually it is 6 months between molts. Some molts can be heaier than others. They don't usually drop all their feathers at once. They will periodically replace a few here and there. I think that's so that they never leave themselves flightless as a result of a molt. I've never seen one lose all of it's crest feathers at once either although I have seen their crests get kind of sparce. Yes they can get moody when the molt because it can be uncomfortable and itchy. I usually mist them more when they are going thru a molt and that seems to help. Offer a shallow dish too you may find a bird that never liked a bath before will suddenly adore it.
