Where are they now?

Satsuki then

and now
Satsuki is slightly larger than the other girls and has been showing off her red comb for weeks now. She reminds me of a sassy old lady, always bossing around the other girls. She walks with her wings just slightly splayed. Shawn thinks she looks like a southern belle curtsying. She is very noisy and is the hardest to catch. We love on her anyway.
Blackberry then

and now

Blackberry is like a little puppy dog. She is the first the greet us and will even come when called, sort of. She'll hop right up on your lap. She likes to see what's going on and doesn't want to miss out on anything. She always tries to eat my clothes.

Mei then
and now

Mei was our little dumplin. Now she is a hawk-like lady with puffy cheeks. She loves to run around the yard and I mean run. She runs here and there and everywhere. She is never quiet sure what she is looking for but its very important.

Saffron then

and now

Saffron started out as our little ring leader and is now the quiet one. She wants to be close to us, but isn't as outgoing as Blackberry. Saffron makes a little noise when picked up but is soothed with an ear rub. Yes, chickens have ears. See the the little fuzzy flaps behind her eyes? Ears. She doesn't like escargot, but loves a good cold cucumber.
