I use rolled oats when the chicks are there, I think they are softer and non toxic so they can all have a nibble :D

They look great Paulie, now the best bit, waiting to see what colour, mutations, etc you have.

 

The rolled oats would add some insulation for them as well.

Glad you found your little chick Paulie. Should be no problem if Mum has chicks of her own same age, except when you want to know which chick belongs to whom. l.o.l.

Will you be able to tell as they feather up?

Sorry robyn missed this one.

im assuming Blues, greens and opaline will come from box three sky hen Normal X olive opaline/blue cock.

box 2 is df splangle yellow hen X Olive sf spangle/blue cock So hope to get some df & sf splangles hopefully some olive mabe blue of some description.

 

Either way I'm keen to see the results.

Nice work Paulie. I have a d/f spangle that was pure white, he now has "suffusion" of pale violet down his chest really pretty.

Df spangle white. There is a smattering of yellow on feather ends.

100_2874_zpsb82644a4.jpg

 

 

Mother is Df spangle yellow and father is Olive body with yellow Sf spangle/Blue,opaline. No idea yet what her colour is split to

 

This chick has managed to get back into the nest box and hasn't re emerged as yet.

Hens in both box 2 and 3 are busily removing the seed from nest boxes. I guess they want the clutch out of nest boxes so they can get down to round 2.

 

 

box 1 has 4 chicks 2 will be pied and 2 will be grey normal

Nice chick, maybe a bit of staining from nest box also. Mine pop in and out of nest box for a few days but generally I gauge them as fully fledged once they can perch instead of hiding in the corners of cage. l.o.l.

Box 3 first clutch completed.

had to remove last 2 from nest box as mum has laid again and was giving the quite a pecking.

Weather here has turned cold again so bubs are inside with an incubator for a little extra warmth and they seem to all be doing quite well
