Bruiser Grows up!


You may have seen Bruiser's Photo Album, but this special page explains the changes in his feathers and colouring as he has grown up.

Marge (also a boy!) is developing the same colourings but is a few days behind Bruiser for some reason!

This is Bruiser on day 4.

His yellowy duckling fluff led us to suspect that he would have unusual colouring as an adult.

Week 4

By day 26, Bruiser had brown juvenile feathers with only a few special black, white and grey feathers  to hint at his handsome colours to come!
