    Weavercat: Day 7

    Someone sent me a question! Thank you mysterious Anonymous for the great question. BirdFolk are about average people height. However if you will notice BirdFolk have long necks. Like their ancestors, Avis advena, they carry their necks in a slight S-shape. If a BirdFolk were to stretch out their neck to be almost straight it would add another few inches to their height. As for weight, exceedingly obesse BirdFolk are a rarity. Their high-metabolism keeps them at a weight of about 90+ lbs. 

    Colors. Oh gosh, lets see. BirdFolk feathers are mostly body down and flexible contour feathers. BirdFolk lack a lot of feathers on their bodies. As for colors, most have natural colors like greys, blacks, rust, brown and blondish colors. Stripped, spotted or two-tone. Nobility is the only class that have iridescence in their feathers. Some BirdFolk engage in feather-dying or bleaching to make themselves stand out. 

    Sexual dimorphism in BirdFolk is silly. Females have small boobs that secrete a milky-sweat. Males have external ding-a-lings. Not much of a difference but well, it’s there. Most males will have better feather-colors than the ladies too.
