Chick bulletin + 21 days

Seven degrees at 8am. Overcast and still in Carmine Superiore this morning.

The chicks are now 21 days old. They've been out of the egg as long as they were in it. The speed of their development continues to astound.

Here's another picture of Alpha (at least I think it's Alpha). He now has a tail, well-defined wing feathers, visible ears and wattles. And, as you've probably already spotted, there's nothing wrong with his digestion.

He also seems to have got over his agoraphobia. If this picture is a little blurry I apologise, but it was the best I could do with a rapidly moving Alpha in the short window of opportunity I had before I was forced to move rapidly myself - downstairs to prevent Number One Son committing sororicide.

Adorable - the chick. Charming - the poop. What the hey? - sororicide.
