The above pic is Barney at ~ 2 weeks give or take... then I gave him away, along with 3
other birds, all 4 of them came back roughly 3 weeks later, so I do not have pictures of
him inbetween these 2 stages...
These next pics I took today... we haven't had rain in 5 weeks... my poor yard is so brown.
his colors change nearly every day, he gets a little more chalky yellow... some of the older
chalky yellow areas are a bit darker and the rust color is spreading nicely on his back.
his breast feathers are dark blue
