The eyasses plumage is coming through

The eyasses are still growing at an incredible rate. They are a lot more active on the ledge, walking up and down and wing flapping frequently. The eyasses now have more pronounced adult plumage coming through, especially their tail feathers and feathers on the wing. The eyasses need to eat more food. Therefore their feathers will be more pronounced and healthy. If they don’t eat enough food their feathers will be brittle.

The adults are leaving the eyasses for longer periods as they are big enough not to be buzzard or raven prey and both adults are hunting.
