It looks so fatty and cute! :p:):):) I like it!
As for realistic rendering, I'm almost sure there's some tutorial on feathered surface or so (there's also one on a signle feather painting by Sandra), but the brush and knife strokes directions with an appropriate mix of colors and tones should be crucial anyway.
Make a little excercise. Obviously on a round body You always have to consider tones on the enlightened parts (including highlights) and the shaded ones.

Hey he is one cute bird:):) been eating a lot of worms:D
In addition to what Cesare said you could also use the pencil tool on 82% pressure. Also the air brush and palette knife add some nice effects to a feathered look.
Just try some things out and see what you like:):)
