    I haven't done this in a quite a while so could you-all tell what age or size my babies are supposed to be when they start feathering out and how long till they really fill in?[​IMG]

    Mine were mostly feathered by about 6 weeks. [​IMG] I think they were about 2-3 weeks old when I noticed a lot of feathering coming in.

    My girl is five weeks old today and is getting a ton of feathers in. I didn't notice any/many adult feathers until she was about 3.5 weeks old.
