    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.
