Info from African cam:

Estimated Timeline of Events:


•Nesting - usually end of August.
•Laying of eggs - nesting begins with the laying of the 1st egg. The female then lays another 2 eggs (usually) - each egg is laid approx 48 hours apart. Total estimated time for laying of eggs is approx 7-8 days.
•Incubation period - approx 30 days from the last egg laid.
•Hatching of the eggs - as above - approx 30 days from last egg laid.
•Eyes opened for the first time - approx 12 - 15 days old. Lovely to watch the chicks trying to focus on objects around them.
•Games and curiosity period - once the chicks are bigger (from approx 25 days old), they start moving around a lot more, flapping their wings, playing with objects in the pot, standing on the lip of the pot
•Wing flapping / testing of wings - starts from 33-36 days old
•Chicks flying - Our chicks flying starts anytime from 40 days onwards.
•Fledging - with the location of the nest, the chicks are with us for longer than they would if the nest was low to the ground. We have the chicks for 57+ days from when they are born. In the 2nd year, we had them for over 70 days.
