What is Molting?
Molting occurs in response to a mixture of hormonal changes brought about by seasonal changes. The entire process is complex and many questions remain regarding how the process is controlled. A basic understanding of molting patterns can be a useful aid in identifying many species and in determining their age.
How Many Molt Cycles Per Year?
Either: One complete molt per year, One complete molt and one partial molt before the breeding season, OR Two complete molts per year: Only a few species undergo two full molts per year. Most of these live in areas where the environment causes significant feather wear and tear.
Therefore, bring in other Fehs from other dimensions to instigate a breeding season and thereby molting. Also, before and after breeding season,change the thermostat of the castle frequently from very cold to very hot. The cold will send hormonal signals to grow feathers quickly while hot weather will cause Feh to shed them.
Through this process, we can multiply our Feather output by several folds.
