Bird of paradise genes

Post

so i was drawing birdos in my school copy like i always do

and i thought to myself " yo what if niche had bird of paradise genes"

and then i went onto here and looked at the suggestions and found that noone suggested it (correct me if im wrong!)

 

if you don't know what a bird of paradise is let me explain:

basically, they are birds that live in jungles(?). Males have extreme tails/manes/beaks etc to impress the females. certain birds make a sort of stage in a clearing by putting a lage stick on some bushes that females can sit on and then the males do a sort of dance, if their dance is good enough, he gets to mate with all the females that were watching his dance.

i think i explained it enough -w-

so in niche, the genes would only appear and have affect on males, like the peacock tail, if you call on a stump it has a chance to spawn a female nicheling.

so on to the first one: extreme back feathers!

this would add maybe a +2/+3 attractiveness but a -1/-2 in flying (the feathers get in the way of flying because they are long)

they would take the same colour as the pattern colour

it would look somewhat like spiky body, but more longer and thicker looking. eg:

( honestly too lazy to draw a nicheling with the feathers rn so ima do it later)

so, next gene: feather tail

feather tails are large tails that are a feather (obvioulsy)

they would have a +1 in attractiveness and would also take on the same colour as the nichlings pattern

e.g:

Swirly/ two slim tails:

swirly tails are small tails that curl up to form a sort of swirl

they would take the color some colour as the horns

eg:

shiny breastplate

some birds of pardise have little shiny breastplates so when they dance a flash of light will appear.

this would add a +2 in attractiveness but maybe disable fur/pattern colour

eg:

thats all for now, i will add more later! -w-

Calling on a stump doesn't require a peacock tail, but perhaps the tail increases the chance of success? Not sure. Peacock tail just makes wild females follow the male around

how about shiny breastplate disables fur color or pattern instead of -1 camo, that's a bit arbitrary and super easy to counteract

yeah, that makes more sense, ill edit it now!
