    I had 3 late hatches this year with similar marks. Chicks are all healthy and happy, it gradually fills in as they feather out. Cute birdie!

    She needs to be careful, that hen next door wants her babies.

    Just an update on the little peachick, still going strong but unfortunately she/he will be alone as the next day the mother had left the other two eggs. But they were both unfertilised, i didn't think she would know and just sit on them until they hatched.

    Our other Peahen that had lost her two Peachicks is showing a strong interest in her Peachick. Is this normal?
