They moult the same way as other pigeons, and it lasts the normal pigeon time frame.

They do loose and re-grow in the muffed feet "boots".
They will lose a ton of feathers-flight, tail, body, head, neck, feet, etc.
Most do it at about the same time. Make sure you are offering a pro-bio and AVC in their water. They also like to take baths during their moult.

If you think the moult is weird, check the inside of their mouth and make sure it is clear and pink. Canker, can produce similiar apearance of that of moulting..so it is always good to be safe.

I hope that helps!
