Pearl and Dewy now have 3 fallow babies in their nest. This is Pearl's first time being a mom, and she's still trying to figure it out.
Dewy raised one chick last year, so this is sort of like a fist time for him too.
For a rare change, I have no idea what these chicks are going to look like. I know Dewy is split for blue and yellowface, and he's also opaline and recessive pied.
Pearl is split recessive pied as well, so the outcomes are vast.
I can't wait to see what we get.
Pearl is sitting on the nest really tight, and I noticed last night that chick #1's right leg is having a hard time staying underneath him, sort of like the beginnings of splayed legs. Do you have any idea how hard it is to tape legs on a week old chick?! VERY! Not to worry, I got him all set with his legs in the correct position and taped up. Now we wait.
Anyhow, enough with the chatter, here are the chicks!
