as I said, I always find stuff to worry about. ... ;D ;D (And I just saw another feeding 1/2 hour ago, the little one got one teeny morsel and that's it .)  :-\ - Maybe I should stop looking. ... :P 

Check out the smallest/youngest Logan chick (4 days younger than its oldest sibling) in the photo I just posted there - kid has a crop so full it would choke one of us!!  Food doesn't seem to be his/her biggest problem - s/he keeps getting mistaken for a pillow by his/her sibs!!

Wow great pics of the Logan chicks and the baby with his stuffed crop.  ;D - Ok no more finding issues with how Princess is doling out the grub!  :P - They're so funny to watch - lots of toppling over!  ;D ;D

Princess looks like she's saying "I'm good.  We don't need any more kids this year."  ;D

TPC is the sun and heat over today and the wknd going to be a problem for the chicks?  ??? - Normally it's rain or cold we're watching but their thermostats aren't regulated yet - will they be too hot/dehydrated?  8)

 ;D Feeding time for 2 little hungry chicks. A lot of marking on the white egg. A high of 31-33C today. It will be very hot this afternoon/evening in the West sun.  :P

Yes heat is a problem for them and yes, the Radisson nestbox gets the sun in the afternoon.  But they should be fine though for a number of reasons
  • Princess knows what she's doing
  • There is a decent breeze out there and because of the height there will be air movement there unlike Logan and lesser so West Winnipeg
  • There is a risk of thunderstorms this evening (60% + 2-4mm) and overnight (70% + 5-10mm) which will help cool things down
  • Sunday not so hot and the wind will be from the west - right into the nestbox

As for dehydration - the chicks get all their moisture from the food they eat, so as long as they keep getting fed they should be fine.

Having said all of that - they are still small so there is plenty of room (even with the eggs) under Princess or Pip to keep to stay in the shade so it will be easier than if they were a week older ...

Chicks got fed, Pip didn't get to hang out with the kids  (Princess 1, Pip 0 this time)

Poor Pip - He doesn't realize how lucky he is so far compared to the other 'Dads' - He doesn't get kicked out nearly as much as they did.  :D

chance of rain has apparently dropped for this evening, but the evening is supposed to cool down sooner than previously forecasted

Hard to tell on the cam because I can't get it to go full screen but is that egg in the front of the chick pile hatching?

I was wondering also - but Princess doesn't seem to be interested (playing with pebbles)  ;D - and nothing really happening - I think now it may be some fluffies stuck to the egg and moving around that makes it look like a hatch.  ???

If it isn't it should be.  Might come under the heading of "Mumbrella" - forgotten about that one  ;D
