    BEHOLD THE POWER OF THE PEKIN!!!!

    About 5 hours ago I weighed and photographed all the 'lings Allie weighed 1.7 ounces compared to the 1.4 ounces Latte had. Latte's fuzz must be bigger because at the time they looked very close to the same size. I was noticing that Allie was noticeably bigger than Latte just now so I weighed her again. She currently weighs 1.9 ounces and believe me she is not constipated. The earlier weigh was AFTER an eating spree (I don't know where the current weigh fell) so the difference isn't a full crop or rehydration from the trip. She gained nearly 12% of her earlier weight in 5 hours...

    Patty, you know me so well. I am both touched, hysterical and speechless over Tony and Yvonne's new little webs. I've been sooo far behind here lately so I am just now seeing all this for the first time.

    !!!! Speechless - seriously.

    Tony - you should be a published photographer. These babies and how you capture them is really bowling me over. Incredible is what comes to mind.

    Latte, Allie and Casey are absolutely perfect. The faces. The bodies. The WEBS.

    Casey, stop picking at my web as I nod off here.

    Even before I came upon this video I was being quite loud eeeeeeeeeeee'ing and hoopoosing at your 'lings then I read what you wrote and just howled, loudly. I share a wall with the neighbor next door and I hope she doesn't tell on me so that I do get evicted. That would be bad.

    But this video had me laughing and then tearing up at just how super duper cute and innocent and teensy they are as they peep and move about and wobble on their webs. The faces and the way they move kills me.

    These little baby birds are a miracle. Just watching them has been so endearing and absolutely wonderful.

    Thank you for putting it up, Tony. I look forward to more.
