    OK...Tasha is the darkest, Pearl is the smallest and lightest..her shoulder feathers are very cream colored, Patty is the biggest, Emily has little dark feathers on the back of her head, Henrietta has light wing feathers and dark shoulder feathers, Cinderella is the friendliest and Lola is the only one so far with chest feathers.....somehow they all just have different features...up until very recently..we could only tell who Tasha, Emily, Patty and Cinderella....Henrietta, Pearl and Lola just recently started getting different features..they all looked the same!!

    How are their bodies supposed to feel at this age? When I pick them up I can feel their breast bone? They eat alot, so is this just how they are or should they be fatter?
