I wonder if the last egg will be discarded. - TPC, when would it be safe to say it's a 'Dud' ?  ???

It is a week since first hatch (May 30th) and 3 days since last hatch and Princess has been letting Pip come in and hang with the kids for longer periods of time, so I'm inclined to think the last egg won't hatch - Princess had only 3 last year too - not bad for a Grand Dame of her age.

I know that somewhere on here you have posted Princess' age, but I think it would be easier if I just asked the question. LOL
How old is Princess and how many years has she come back to the Radisson Hotel?

Princess hatched in 2002 in Minneapolis - she nested for the first time here at the Radisson in 2004 with Trey.  So she is 15 years old and this is her 14th year nesting here.  Bonus factoid - she's had 4 mates = Trey, Ivy, Smiley & now Pip.

So, one of the kids is showing signs of wanting to motor out of the shadow of his mom (Is that Princess - I can't tell) and is probably just trying to get cooler.  Chick has settled again, but looked ready to take off.  Princess had Superchicks last year...wouldn't be surprised if these turned out to be the same :-*

I haven't been able to watch all day and now, checking in I swear that they've doubled in size since yesterday - at least, the one wobbly that was awake... :o

Pip appears to be coming along nicely as a mate ... we are having a few problems with the outside cam, so haven't been able to check out his food delivery the last couple of days, but it appears he's doing a good job - and the nest isn't filthy!!  (or at least not yet)

The chicks are growing by leaps and bounds. They are now closer to the camera and butt scooting for attention. A few face plants here and there, but developing their skills on route to fledge time.  :-\
