Eden: 01.9 Ounces (0.4 Oz Gain) - Jill Rees line
^ Surprisingly, although she had a bit of a reddish tint to her chick fluff, the feathers on her wings are developing a silver/gray/creamish.
I expressed a bit of my concern in previous posts, but am now put to ease! I also just love her quirky little baby crest! It's just so adorbs!
I will say that even though they are chicks, Eden (Rees) is much more tame and does not object to be picked up. Khaleesi on the other tame is a wild card and sometimes, I'll find her perched on one side of the box which is 15 inches high. I've now added bird netting on top so she doesn't escape!
They're so sweet! (I love baby pictures!) Khaleesi already has a little crest showing! Regarding coloring - I'm not entirely sure you can tell this young - mine are still continuing to evolve and pop up coloring in areas at 23-24 weeks. But you will adore them and it won't matter.
They fly really well into adulthood. Whatever your outdoor plans are for them, keep this in mind. I didn't realize this fully and have had to adjust my plans for confinement when letting them have roaming time. Have had to get on the ladder and pull them out of the oak tree quite a few times...
Maybe Khaleesi just can't pronounce her name...
