    Just wanted to share some recent pics of our babies.

    During the weekdays I only get to see them in the morning when I clean the crate and feed them, as it's all rush, rush, rush, but yesterday, Saturday, we let them out at last again to spend some time with us. Left to right: Annie, Robbie and Greta:

    And yesterday Dudu, Shakti and Bindi were moved from their cage (where Dudu had re-started again picking feathers on the girls' backs) to a large room. They didn't like the idea at first, so I sat with them for an hour to help them relax and get used to it.

    My girls, Bindi and Shakti, watching the pigeons:

    Dudu on the other hand adjusted much faster and walked about the room introducing himself to everyone: "Duuuuuudu! "Duuuuudu!" LOL

    In the end Shakti decided it was comfy enough here to sleep:

    Hard to believe my little Dudu so grown up (and yesterday he tried to pick me, so I used a water spray bottle (like I use for dogs) to surprise him, for now he has stopped)

    All three finally walking about and exploring:

    And then on Thursday we had these marvels hatch. Naked neckies in some unusual (for us) colours (there are more babies):

    And once again I wanted to say that this forum is amazing and I am so grateful to use it and get answers to my questions.

    Amazing birds! Love the NN babies too. I have a question. How old is the building/room that you moved the chickens to? I love historic places. Living in the wild west, there are hardly any buildings or houses over 100 years old or so. I'm always amazing people live where buildings can be several hundred years old.

    Thanks for the comments!

    Pharm Girl, I hope I don't disappoint you, LOL but the building is not that old at all - in Malta things are built out of limestone, so it deteriorates much sooner and looks ancient, he he. But our farm is situated in an old limestone quarry, hence part of the wall of the room - it's part of the rock. (The island of Malta is one entire rock altogether, LOL. And not a big one at that, only around 400,000 people!)

    Still cool! I don't even know where Malta is in the world, I'll have to google it. I think I might need to visit soon. I'm guessing the limestone rocks are ancient anyway, so still amazing. We only have moss [​IMG]

    Oh Wow, Off the boot in the middle of the Mediterranean! Now I have to add that to the list right next to Guernsey.
