    Finally the stars and planets were all in alignment and I had the time, charged camera battery and empty memory card to photograph the chicks I hatched a couple of weeks ago! They are huge, and quite chubby!!! Some of the black ones have interesting feathering coming through. I should have kept a record of who was who in the pics.

    It seems that the ones with splotchy faces have the white feathering in their wings:

    I wonder if the ones with the mottling now will stay mottled, like the other project or moult to solid? They're adorable.

    The black chicks will moult that white out as they fill in more. Boy, those are chubbies, aren't they. [​IMG]
