    My 3 that are almost 2 months are really smooth, with long straight flight feathers. How long did it take yours to get curly feathers?
    Thanks,
    Bel
    Heres a video from today if you want to see what I mean.

    Quote:First of all , what a darling video. They love the camera the little hams. One of them has shoulder feathers and should be a smooth breasted but the other two seem very smooth. If they were going to be curly they would have had curly feathers come in after loosing their down. They look very happy and loved.

    Thanks [​IMG] They really wanted to eat the camera strap.
    Its surprizing 2 out of 3 noncurly, just my luck, I still love them though. Can smooth sebbies fly? they seem pretty heavy but the wings are huge so I don't know. They love running down our long driveway with their wings out flapping like they are ready for takeoff.

    I think I might have a little better luck with Loudmouth (the gander with the most white), I thought hes smooth but with his wings close I see a couple ruffly feathers.
