Molting Is Revolting!!!


MOLTING IS REVOLTING!!- I’m sure you will agree…
Honest, it’s not snowing, it really is just me!
MOLTING IS REVOLTING!!- I feel a lot of stress…
Good thing I’m not wild, then I’d really be a mess!

MOLTING IS REVOLTING!!- I itch and itch and itch…
This is a part of birdhood I wish that I could ditch!

MOLTING IS REVOLTING!!- I really need some scratches…
feathers flying everywhere, you see my skin in patches!

MOLTING IS REVOLTING!!- I could use a shower…
Ahhh! That’s better! I could stay here by the hour!

MOLTING IS REVOLTING!!- will I lose every feather?
I hope they grow back soon, in time for colder weather!

MOLTING IS REVOLTING!!- my new feathers are in quills…
I feel like a porcupine, not my idea of thrills!

MOLTING IS REVOLTING!!- all I seem to do is preen…
I eat a lot too- lots of stuff called “protein”?

MOLTING IS REVOLTING!!- I can’t help but be a grouch….
all these prickly brand-new feathers, they’re sensitive- ouch!!

MOLTING IS REVOLTING!!-this really is a pain…
What? In six months it happens all again??
