Is This Right???

Post by Gemma » Fri Oct 08, 2010 8:52 pm

hello
when i bought my IRN, the pet shop owner said that he/she was 4 weeks old..he/she barely had any feathers and i was reluctant to take him/her at that age. but i did :lol: and i am not sure if his/her feathers are growing at the normal rate...i have looked on the forum at other birds that were around his/her age and they look different..he/she is now 5ish weeks old and has fluffy grey feathers on his back and blue feathers on his wings (sorry i can't figure out how to upload photos :( ) some parts of his body still don't have any feathers!
please help :?
thanks
Gem

I would say he/she was/is a bit younger than they told you.
Here is a thread (you may have already seen it) that has some pics of young irns and there is many more on here to give you an idea of ages.
