    Piper, Penelope and Madison
    I have already noticed personalities emerging, how they like to be petted or held.Their wings are really coming in now.
    I can tell the difference in them due to their coloring. Penelope in the middle doesn't seem to have the dark markings like the other two girls. Piper is the biggest, followed by Madison, then Penelope... and this is based on the rate of the growth of their feathers. Is it possible that they are a day apart in hatching? Is it common that Penelope is another breed since she's so fair compared to the other two? Or it happens that her coloring is just lighter? Anyone with information or ideas, thoughts etc... on NH Reds I would appreciate it. [​IMG]
