European Goldfinch Moult

Moulting starts in Oct-Nov, take about 1 month, and it's the most dangerous period of goldfinch's life.

Feed healty foods, and some fat seeds, clean water and take care to remove fecal everyday(yes everyday...)

Red mask will comes out during moulting, the color will show its healty status(orange bed, red so so, red good) Don't forget allow to bird "sun shower", in this way you fix the color.
Check status every 2 days (chest and fecal).
Coccidiosis is lurking ...

Take clear Hospital Cage for emergency, will be the only thing can save until veterinary don't come.

Good luck,
