Cinnamon Scaly-breasted Lorikeet

Cinnamon scaly now over eight weeks old with its sibling, a normal green scaly.
They are now both about the same physical size, the cinnamon has caught up on the green over the last two weeks. Apart from the plumage differences the beak and feet colour are quite striking differences. The cinnamon developed a light orange or horn coloured beak within a few days of hatching whereas the green will have a black beak for about three months before it becomes a deeper orange then red colour. Both may eventually have bright red beaks.
