Wugu amagnae hatchlings are inquisitive and active, but remain much more tender than their wild counterparts. They will travel in groups around the yard, seeking out any scraps of food the adults leave behind, but they are also apt to follow any people, dogs, or passing wildlife out of sheer curiosity. For this reason, it is important to keep a well-managed perimeter lest a trove of chicks wander out following the mail carrier. One doesn't have to worry about them flying away, for even adult wugu amagnae are poor flyers. Their fluffy feathers also help keep them afloat if they should fall into water, though their swimming skills leave something to be desired, and they do not fare well if they remain wet for long.

One of the most affectionate of creatures, wugu amagnae are sociable creatures and quite different from most other amagnae. They will run up, gobling, to anyone who approaches, begging for treats. They occasionally mingle with other amagnae, whether to mate or hunt for food, but they are most suited to living with or near humans. Their whole bodies are covered in soft, hairlike feathers, giving them a furry appearance that easily distinguishes them from other amagnae. While their beaks and claws are just as sharp as those on any other amagnae, they only use these tools to hunt, and it is uncommon to be bitten by a wugu amagnae. Their feathers make them highly prized as show birds, and the feathers they leave behind when they molt can be used to stuff lavish matreses and pillows. Many scholars have noted the similarities between wugu and domestic amagnae, and how the hairlike feathers on the former are of little use in the forest of Silva, except perhaps to keep warm. Wugu amagnae are often thought of as domestically bred fancy amagnae, though where and when the breed originated is uncertain.
