I've had Sammy for a couple of years now and he has never gone through what I would call full molt. He gets a few pin feathers on his head once in a while but that is it. He has been missing the long flight feathers on his left wing during this time. I am wondering if his diet might be off or if not having an avian light for him might be effecting his molt. Your thoughts are appreciated.

Thanks

I have had buddy for 2 and half years and I don't recall a "full" molt either. He has lost feathers on and off but I have seen pictures of some birds going through a molt and Buddy doesn't look anything like that. I can barely see or tell when he molts except for a few feathers here and there. He eats seeds, pellets and fresh veggies, also some whole grain toast.
