First young

Recommended Posts

All, 

     Today I have my first chick 2 days old,

This is from my new birds, picture is on site of the males in the bath,

Still long way to go but keeping fingers crossed.

Any more hatched out yet Trevor? 

Remember that pair of fawn penguins (one crested)I bought at Stafford you wanted to know about them- (the ones that laid the double yolker- Seems  their eggs wont be hatching now maybe some not fertile or chick died early in the shell because none have hatched out - but they are raising two chicks from another pair  that  had abandoned their nest and I put  two eggs from that abandoned nest into the incubator and as soon as they hatched out I transferred the chicks into their nest and so far the chicks are being fed. Just not sure whether to remove the other eggs from the nest or just leave them until those chicks are a little bit older?

Emmy,

           Don't see much of them in mornings when I feed. I know I've got lights in cages but I tend to leave alone. 

I regually check all cages/nests at weekends, 

Other pairs are sitting on eggs, so this mild spell does help,

I only want to have one brood for each pair as the young will be a big help for my 2016 project.

All,

      The nest in question only had one young, now 14 days old,

I shall try and get pic on Sunday when I check them,

Also I have another nest with 2 skins in approx 3days old, parents for these are BBLB/OB X LB/OB. 

So fingers crossed on these. 

Thanks for reading,

Trevor ?

That's a pity you only got one chick out of the 6 eggs but you did get one and maybe next time the results will be better. Was this the first time they have had eggs?

Wishing you 'good luck' with the other two.

Went in shed today to clean out as planned plus photo of youngster but sadly it had died,

Dunno why all ok yesterday,

Emmy, yes first round for them, but that's  bird keeping I suppose,

The other 2 in another nest are doing well (fingers crossed)

Sorry to hear that you lost that chick Trevor I'm beginning to wonder if its anything to do with the weather I've lost some too and 'Julie's' one year old Kakariki died today and it had been OK in the morning.
