    Here is Meggie's only baby.

    What looked black positively has some red hue in it now that it is dry and fluffy.

    I am ready for my close up, Mr. Deville.

    I am thinking it is a little cockeral.

    Well, this is interesting! Cant wait till it starts to feather out! I'm so glad you got one baby out of those few eggs I sent. Too bad about the second one. Seems logical that a baby from Meg with Suede might be too big to get out of the egg, though.

    Zip ties can be found at TSC and Lowes and Home Depot and other places.

    These are tiny ones. About 3 inches long. I clip the end off. Meg's is the only one in this batch that has a leg band.
