    Not for awhile. I am definately no peachick expert but I would think he would need to be completely feathered. Also where are you located. It is probably too cold right now.

    Usually about 3 months is standard, I think. Since you're in the middle of summer... I don't think the weather will be too cold. [​IMG]
