The flight feathers.

An ignorant question. How would the flight feathers be different?

As the tips emerge from their sheath, smoothies look like this:

 

 

Silkied look more like this:

You can see a little glimpse of their flight feathers if you look at the image full screen

Yes, I see.  One thing I've noticed about Tribbles is that their legs and feet are quite fleshy. A rather unique look. I sure hope some of mine hatch. I keep wanting to candle, but know that can be overdone. Bad hands-I keep dropping things all day and every day.  I don't want to lose a Tribble that way.

I tried to put a legband on my tribble at the same time as the other Seramas of the same age. No way could I get it on him, his feet are Soooo fat! :D

Oddly, it's one of the first things I noticed that was way different. Nine days to go before my tribbles hatch. Ra_ should start a Tribbles thread. How many do you have?

I just have the one fat little Tribble. I will try to get a picture of him on here soon. I do have other Seramas, (about 70) smooth feathered and silkied.

If I made a thread about breeding my seramas from generation to generation, Would anyone follow that?
