Feathers On Baby Budgies

Recommended Posts

Just wondering (and I did look through the FAQs but they didn't tell me).... when do baby budgies get their first real feathers? e.g. 7 days after hatching? 8? 10? I was just curious as to when the babies will start to look like "real" birds.

The little pins you are seeing in the oldest is the start of the fluff on the body. That will come in roughly 1 week or just over. Then the other feathers start to grow in, first the tail and wing feathers then the body feathers by week 3 you should be able to see colour and by week 4 most to all of their feathers should be grown and they look like a adult bird, the only difference is their tail is short (and of cause the bars on the head).
