    WHen do they get the green heads, white ring and all that good pretty stuff? My drake is 9 weeks and has the irredecent colors on his wings, and is getting the drake tail feathers. But no other colors yet.
  2. Hes s till going to molt 1 more time out of his teenage feathers and into his adult feathers. You should see a drake tail by 4 months or a bit sooner

    My guy is going on 5 months and one week about. He has most of his coloring in his body and his chest and he has his drake feathers, they pooped up when he was 9 weeks as well. His head though is not green yet. There are green feathers popping up every day though, and he is loosing more and more feathers. There head will be the last to turn. Just like it is the last thing to grow the feathers. [​IMG]
