The chicks are two weeks old. They are developing beautifully; their wing feathers are now complemented by emerging tail feathers. Admittedly they’re also looking a bit scruffy, as they’re shedding their fluff to make way for the feathers.
I’m aware that I haven’t been taking so many pictures of our original quartet, so taken have I been with cute chix. To compensate, here they are, still fighting fit and enjoying life.
We’ve replaced the original 25 metre net with a 50 metre one, so they’ve got a bit more ground to scratch in. They still favour the area under the trees, though, with its shade and natural cover.
