Today, as we enter our home after a long day at work we are confronted with feathers – everywhere. On the floor, behind furniture, on the walls. And one scruffy looking pigeon in her cage. You guessed it, it’s moulting time for Georgie!

A few times a year both Elmo and Georgie moult their feathers and grow new ones, making them look like they’re a badly stuffed pigeon. The feathers are of all sizes, from their small down ones to the big flight feathers, and at one point we collected them all to make a pigeon pillow.

So out comes the vacuum cleaner and the attempt to suck up all the stray feathers. Georgie doesn’t seem bothered by our exasperated looks as she preens herself and drops more feathers on the sofa. I contemplate sticking them back into her.
