So this is kinda cool, I bought this small Guinea Fowl puffer a few months ago. I thought she was cool because of her unique white on white coloration instead of black and white. Now it looks like there is some yellow showing up on her head, I've heard that they change colors in the wild but it's uncommon in captivity. Anyone have any experience with this? Do we think she might go full golden? Photos aren't as clear as in person.

Not sure if thats an aging thing or what not. Any dietary changes?

Haven't heard much about this is captivity, but if she started to change then I assume she will change fully if conditions stay the same.

I'm surprised the change is so rapid. Puffers are slow growers and I would have expected those two picks to be a couple years apart.
