Hello all! My little crested babies are a month old now, and they are SUPER chubby and fluffy and adorable We've been raising them in our living room, so they're the friendliest little babies ever. Here's baby Afro, the smallest of the four:
You can feel pin feathers under their down, and they have feathers on their butts... two are slightly older than the others and they have some feathers on their bellies. I've been putting them outside when it's not too cold, but my question is this: will pointing a fan at them help them grow in their feathers more quickly? These babies are getting HUGE and I'm due to have my first human baby on January 4th.... it would be nice to speed the process along
Pointing a fan will not help. It's a gradual process AND they still need to be kept warm .I am thinking by the time your human hatches these will be nicely feathered. and putting them outside when it's cold may not do anything but cause sickness. They cannot control their body temp when they aren't fully feathered... Afro is absolutely adorable. At a month old 70* is the best temp for them..
