Long feathers take up a lot of room, and could not develop in the egg. The baby bird's down is a very efficient insulator, which helps conserve energy that it needs to survive and also for its rapid growth. Once it is of a good size and begins to need the longer feathers, they grow in.
A kingfisher has feathers so that they can fly and catch the fishes in the sea

hey hi, yes the coromant has feathers and fur but does not have fins. cheers
it is in thelight house beacon Its near the bear statue outside of the mine the golden feater is at the becon A.K.A the top of the light house
Go to the beacon above the lighthouse it will be there so then go back to the stage for your award The golden feather is ether on the top of the light house or where i found it near the mine and if you find it and you want to know how to get it, walk over it. When you have the golden feather and go… back to the play a bridge will be made and this will make you go over it and near the chair you get a free background. ( Full Answer )

Penguins' feathers are waterproof for two reasons. 1. To protect against the cold. Their feathers are coated with oil from a gland near the tail to increase the "waterproof" factor. They have a downy underlayer of feathers which traps air against the skin. This layer of air is warmed by the pengu…in's body heat. 2. To enable them to swim quickly and powerfully by streamlining their bodies. Penguin feathers are short and packed together tightly, overlapping, to keep water away from the skin and to create a smooth surface to lower drag. ( Full Answer )
Penguin feathers are very soft on the back, since they have several layers and for confort they will need to be extra "cushy" which means they're like cushions. On the front however, it is more smooth and oily. Since penguins tobbagan on their bellies it would be very slick and fine :D

Yes, like any other penguins they have feathers to keep them warm when they are looking for fishes in the freezing water.
the wings are too small or because their bodies are upright most off the time makeing it very hard to propel upwards. But the body shape helps with swimming
The black is to absorb sunlight better and the white is to camouflage them from polar bears
huh? whadaya mean? there is the golden feather pin at the beacon! if that's what u mean
The penguins feathers when they are first born are black and grey but when they are fully grown the feathers are black and white
Because feathers are lighter for the birds to fly instead of fur that is heavier. Scales are used by fishes to swim.
to insulate and help them regulate their temperature. it stops their body temperature from dropping as it keeps the water off their skin
Yes, they keep them warm in the cold Antarctic water. But if oil gets on their feathers they could die of being too cold.
animals have fur to keep them warm its the same with feathers and they have fins so they can swim faster
