    The pics don't quite do them justice. Niav's silver with golden tips and just luscious; Fee is creamy white with a silver head and Dub looks more like a hawk every day...
    I have two others that were also kinda buff like Fiona and are similar to her now, just a little more gold lacing...
    Love these girls! They're so sweet and funny!

    Oh, I know! The colors are so much more vivid in person. Pearl is, well, metallic! What looks gray in the photo is actually silver. She laid down on my hand and spread her wing out for me to take a photo and while I know she was just enjoying the sun, it really seemed like she was posing in every shot (she doesn't normally hold her wing low like a Sebright either). Hazel is ORANGE and I never would have guessed it from the tan chick that she was.​

    Here are our EE's. They just turned 3 weeks old! Growing very fast and hard to tell which one is which. When they were new, they looked like chipmunks.
