I was wondering about the molting cycle too. I've had Sherby since May and he molted for about 2 monthes. I know people on the forum have said their first molt usually takes longer, and that was his first. It ended the end of September or early October, and he's starting to get pin feathers again already!!! Is that normal? I live in Michigan as well, so it could be weather changes, I guess. I was gonna say fall and spring were bad for inconcistant weather, then I thought about it and realized, its always inconcistant.
