 ;D Happy to know that the "paint" is nearly dry and the first little one hatched. Princess, you never cease to amaze me. I look forward to watching this family expand and develop their skills as they head toward migration.

Hey - I just discovered that we can 'Rewind' the video feed - Just grab the far right end of the red line and drag it backwards - Voila!!  ;D ;D  - It goes back about 3 hours, so if we miss anything we can always check it out that way!  8)

Yesterday Pip actually managed to get past the Gorgon Queen to hang out with his chick within 1 day!  I have to believe she's mellowing or he's a very good influence on her!

This was from mealtime this morning - couple/three hours before chick two arrived ..

Checked the recorder and not quite yet Bally - the wet chick you saw was chick number two drying out.  They are pink when they first come out of the shell and take an hour or more to dry out to fuzzy white.  Other two eggs - white and brown - were still under her on her spin about 1020h.

Right, definitely just 2 still - much more clear now!  :) - Just saw a feeding - the newest chick, try as he/she might did not get one bite  :'( - Kept falling over, couldn't get into the right position......seems there's always something to worry about.  :P
