    They should start losin their fuzz soon [​IMG] just dont blink! Or you'll miss the whole transformation . I think at about a month the feathers and quills start sprouting. My two month olds are almost fully feathered now.

    Yep, about 1 month old and they start getting in their hard feathers [​IMG] They sometimes get a little grumpy when they start to get them too because it can be a bit of a painful process. I had one that i called monster for a month because she was just an evil little thing until she got most of them in!
