This is Sputnik at 8 weeks old. She is starting to get most of her feathers.The red tail feathers are just starting to come in.
FYI bird feathers come in in sheathes, similar to the covering on the end of your shoestrings.
They pull off the sheathes when a new feather comes in. That is why most of our shoesstrings do not have that covering.
They tend to pull that off thinking they are grooming us.
