Those necks are amazing, Mary! I think it's a matter of perspective as it's more noticeable on some nests!

This isn't the best s'cap for it, but I'm noticing today that not only is #1 a lot bigger, she's also beginning to get the scruffy look that comes with the heavier down.

#1 is two weeks old today.
#2 was one week old late yesterday afternoon
#3 was one week old early this morning

Definitely a very different pattern than most 3-chick nests (and probably the result of egg #1 having spent several weeks in an incubator - it was removed from the nest shortly after being laid because of a tornado watch, and not returned until shortly before it was due to hatch).

[Just realized I forgot to add my s'cap - will check after breakfast to see if I have it on my thumb drive]

I did remember that the first egg had been removed for a while. It has to have something to do with the week difference in hatch dates and the huge difference in their sizes. At least they all seem to get along quite well from my observations anyway Roll eyes


About 4:45 EDT......Big wings from Independence as she carefully gets up off the chicks..

Mumbrella had to get up to change positions. I think all of the littles were getting away from her. We seem to have a new pile of greenery...good!

You're right JudyB. The oldest chick's darker coloring is evident in this scap.

Nice s'cap, Mary! (I just realized I forgot to attach my s'cap showing #1's darker color, so glad you caught that!)

Definitely very different in size!
