Funny Foto of Fang :)

Fang is what his vet describes as a "lazy preener". Thus he usually has long streamer-like downy feathers protruding from under his wings which we like to call his "kinky bumfluff"

Lately however, and somehow this has been happening quite a bit, when he does preen he somehow ends up with a discarded feather that gets stuck on the very tip of his crest, like so :-



I'm sure theres a Dr Seuss character somewhere that resembles this!

Nope, normal guy! Not allowed out and about without a female review!
Mrs Boats demands a look at both Julio and me prior to us going anywhere.

Thank you ravvlet, yes Fang is a handsome young man! He gets his looks from his father’s side of the family

And yes Mr Sailboat I’ve had to stop hubby a few times before he’s left the house with his shirt on inside-out. Mind you I once did the grocery shopping with my dress on inside-out so unfortunately even La Manuka Scarlette is not immune to the occasional wardrobe malfunction!

It's called a "Fashion statement'
Well done Fang!!!
