Flock of pin heads
Earlier this week I posted about how Léa was going through a heavy molt and had pin feathers all over her head that I needed to take care of. Well she's not the only one. It appears that Piper, Zuri and Pixel have also been feeling extremely itchy due to new pin feathers growing in and have demanded that their heads be scratched (by placing themselves right in front of me, within hand reach and bowing down their heads). Shade and Joey have also requested a few head scratches, although not nearly as many as the others and their heads have generally appeared not as pinny. It's quite likely that Petey is also going through a molt, although he wouldn't ask me for a head scratch nor would I venture my fingers so close to his beak.
