The magnetic response of CeFe(2) single crystals was studied by direct current magnetization and linear and non-linear alternating current susceptibility measurements. Several anomalies have been observed below the Curie temperature. A kink near 30K in the real component of the linear susceptiblity is accompanied by a frequency dependent peak in both the linear imaginary part and the third harmonic nonlinear susceptibility. It is suggested that these features are related to the development of antiferomagnetic spin fluctuations of growing spatial extension, indicating an electronic instability below 80K.
