5 days old now and the chicks look to have almost doubled in size already. They’re still amusingly unsteady and wobbly, like they are controlled by a puppeteer’s strings, but rapid growth is a good sign. It must have been chilly up there the last 36 hours or so – the bigger the birds get, the better they will be able to handle any cold they are exposed to. However, most of the time they are still tucked under a brooding adult for warmth and feeding time is the only time to get a proper look at them. It’s great to see them when they are out on show and this post is basically just an excuse to post some cute screen grabs of them! They’re adorable.
Stay strong little eyases.
