    Jean, the other RIR wasn't happy about being a celebrity. She is still shy, but getting better. Foghorn is the boldest. She just wants to be carried around all day. Ghost is persnickity and likes to peck whatever comes near her. Makarov is the largest and just wants to sleep in your lap, on your chest, in your hand...just don't move her around to much....she gets all flappy and indignant, but it's a great way to see her wings which are streaked with gold.

    Your birds are HUGE! I have three-weeks-olds of some of the same breeds and they are still small enough to fit in the palm of my hand! Even the brahmas! Hopefully mine catch up to yours soon. They are beautiful!
