    My gunieas are starting to mature I guess? Their heads and faces are starting to get the white coloring and the fuzz is slowly coming off. They still have a little of the brownish feathering but most of the pearled feathers are in. Their necks look all fuzzy and weird and they're rolling around in the dirt like dust bathing is ultra orgasmic or something. Is this normal??? They don't have any mites or anything. I have to say though, they are looking the ugliest they have looked since getting them at a couple days old.

    They are just taking a dust bath in the dirt, perfectly normal.

    They can certainly go through the "uglies". [​IMG]
