    Nice! I can't wait until my big guy finally finishes filling out. The lumpy rainbow stage seems to last forever!

    What makes him "melanized"? He looks like a regular partridge to me.

    Yep, his juvenille feathering was for the more melanized version. At adulthood it doesn't show quite as much as when they are baby downed and in juvenille feathering. Nice result you have there he's a handsome partridge bird.
