    Today 3 of my 18 eggs hatched.

    They are so darn cute!!!

    2 are yellow and 1 brown

    I need to know when they will start to get out of the broder so i dont have any surprises
    how old will they 1st be able to fly out of the 1 foot tall wall? and will they go back to the broder if they do?

    Mine were escaping the 12" wall at 1 week. They didn't try to get back in, just peeped loudly that something was wrong. I put up a taller wall with netting over it that day.
