    Hi with food designed for molting and for breeding season should only be given to birds once every 2days when not moliting or breeding.

    During the molting and breeding season this should be given once per day.

    The best thing to do during the molting period is use a spray mist bottle and gently mist the birds with warm water this helps soften the shafts and makes it easier for the new feathers to break through.

    If birds are in a cage and its possible to place the cage outside when its warm and sunny then do so aslong as you keep an eye on them and they are not in direct sunlight, Birds get Vitamin D from the sun which in turn helps with fether production and general well being.
