Ok first of all - sorry no piccies yet!! will work on that should have it sorted by midweek
The good news is that after my earlier concerns about Kiri she is doing amazing well, and has honestly never looked fitter or more content. Even Kenny is getting his head feathers back now hehe
The first of their new babies was born on 30th of June and they have a total of 7 fluffies now, and (fingers crossed) they all seem to be doing well. Both Mum and Dad are very attentive and they both seem to feed babies non-stop all day. At the moment I think I have 4 greens, and 3 pieds with yellow as the more dominent colour.
My only concern at this stage is that they may get too warm in the nest box in this weather, as I'm out to work all day, and don't have time to get home at lunch time - any suggestions? I do leave one of my upstairs windows cracked open, but can't leave anything open downstairs or I may as well give the burglers keys! Kiri & Kenny have a bath constantly available so I'm hoping that the moisture from them after they have bathed will help to keep the fluffs cool, but all suggestions very gratefully received.
Congrats on the fluffs!!!!! Hope all goes well with these guys!! Could you leave a fan on low blowing to the side of the cage just so there is good air movement and it might cool the air around the cage?? Dunno if it would work... just a suggestion.
Just a quick question - I'm seriously considering pulling the youngest chick from the nest to be hand reared as it seems to be getting walked on by the older chicks in quite a big way. Would it be about the every 2 hours feeding stage for him/her at the moment (approx 10 days old)?? Failing that any other ideas to help stop him/her getting squished as I'd hate to lose him/her. This one looks like being almost completely yellow
