DNA tests revealed that our chick is a she!





Note there are more white breast feathers. Her wings are still heavy with blood feathers and she hasn’t started her wing exercises in earnest. Parents check on her, and later a Red Junglefowl (Gallus gallus) strolls by.

I've been away for over a week and couldn't believe the difference in Kaloakulua's size and appearance when I turned the cam on this morning. She is growing up so quickly and is becoming a gorgeous bird Wub

A few s'caps from approx. 6:14am cam time this morning. She looks like she has a fluffy scarf around her neck.

This is Kaloakulua now; just a few fluffy feathers left around her neck. She is adult size now and will soon be fledging Clapping
