Smooth is the most common feather type found in Ketucari. As this is the default feather variation, it can occur in any breeding, even between 2 parents with non-smooth feather types.
Fantail is an uncommon feather type. This gene causes the feathers along the tail and crest to become longer while retaining their natural texture, unlike the Phoenix feather type.
The Phoenix gene causes the feathers to become long and silky.
The Frizzle gene causes the feathers to take on a soft texture and lay in a tousled, messy manner.
The Silkie gene causes the feathers to take on a plush, fur-like texture.
The Harpy gene shortens the range of the crest and creates a "split tail" effect with the tail feathers.
Bald ketucari are almost completely lacking feathers. They have soft, peach-fuzz "fur" and some short feathers along their limbs.
