Birds of a Feather

The Midtown Chicks had a nice afternoon together in the yard. While I planted potatoes, the girls explored, always staying close to the coop.
Saffron is really starting to plump up. Satsuki is slowly losing her baby fuzz. Mei is going to be a red head and her feathers are starting to come in on her head and neck. Blackberry is still lean and has strips of naked skin where the feathers haven't come in yet, she looks funny.
From left to right: Saffron, Satsuki, Mei and Blackberry.

Gray placed them on the perch for some pretty pics. They were quite content, even dosing off now and then. Chickens really are social animals.
