    Who else has red stars? Please include pictures. I have six but I don't have any pictures of them yet. They are about fifteen months old.

    I have 3 now. Their names are Sora, Skua, and Flicker.


    Sora is a sweetie. She is always chattering quietly, as if she's not quite sure of things. Sometimes she gets going in conversations with me, just clucking ever-so-lightly as she goes along.

    Skua is a bit more adventurous than her sister, often staying out later than the rest of the hens. She doesn't mind a wattle rub now and then, but does NOT like being picked up. (This is one of only a few pictures I have of Skua. I thought I had more...)

    Flicker's a little strange. She has a kink in her breastbone and didn't lay for her first year or so. Her comb has never been very large, and she's always been overweight. She is high up in the pecking order and always has one of the highest perches at night.

    These girls are all going to be 3 this spring. :)

    She's got this neat, marbled white effect down her front now, and some of her neck feathers came in white with red around their edges.
