  1. The past two mornings I have found Stormy out of the box, and this morning s/he got a little lift off while I had him/her out. So I'm considering him/her fledged. S/he's already eating somewhat on his/her own as well. Here are todays photos, 31 days old
  2. Sorry to hear that KAZ, she was a pretty bird.
  3. Thanks, The camera I use is a Canon Power Shot A1100 IS. I have notice that the chest amrkings are lighter blue than the rump, anyone know why this might be? There is a slight posibility that this chick is /clearwing, could that be why? I am also leaning toward female now, s/he's getting quite mouthy and that seems to be a female thing.
  4. Here you go, natural light photos.
  5. my last brood fledged at 4-5 weeks, LB. Thats just when they felt it was time to come out. her 2nd egg is due today.
  6. LB, I am hesitant to remove the hen because thats how her mother died, I removed her and I think the stress caused her to bind(she was a very flighty bird and took her a good while to calm down after handling). I'd hate to remove this hen, even though she's not as flighty, and have the same thing happen. Thats why I gave her the dummy, hopefully she'll accept it until the chick fledges in a few days then I'll remove the box.
  7. I posted last night but I guess the internet ate it. GB, I dont see any signs of opaline on this chick. Here is yesterdays photo, feel free to edit it to show me where you see cobalt in the wing bars.
  8. I put a dummy egg in the box to replace the one she laid. she does look a little thinner than normal, and would likely benefit from a break. Like I said her mother died of egg binding and I dont want to risk losing her that way. I will remove the box when the chick fledges in a few days. Theres only one chick, and s/he's 25 days old today.
  9. Do you mean from the time they pip the air cell til the time they pip the eggs shell? it can take 2-3 days from internal pip til external pip. And from external pip til hatched it can take another 1-3 days, but usually after 2 they seem to get weak and may not survive.
  10. I was hoping she wouldn't, but Hectors hen has laid another egg with Stormy in the nest. The hens mother died from binding so I dont want to kick stormy out and remove the box giving her no place to finish her clutch, but three in a row is too much(even if one clutch was infertile). So what would you all do?
  11. I suppose DF YF is possible considering GF would probably mask it, so Hector could be both, but even so I would expect to see GF. I might have to re-pair these two to see what else they give. Here are todays photos you can see from this picture that s/he's not opaline, there is a white streak running between the wings though, perhaps that is why so many assumed opaline. However there is no cobalt on the wings/back of neck. this one came out a bit blurry but you can see the amount of white on him/her, this chick is marked more so like the hen than Hector. And learning to be affectionate towards people, any gender guesses with this photo?
  12. Ahh, thanks Dave. been a few days since I posted pics, I'm really liking the color this chick is showing, almost lavender and a lot of white. I'm leaning toward male, the cere is very uniform pink, might be a little early yet to call it though. Here are todays photos
  13. Ahh well, maybe a mod can change the thread title. And here are todays photos. This one is a bit blury but you can still see the color. Under the cheeks there is also a slight touch of violet or mauve too, little weird.
  14. I'm thinking stormy's a cobalt chick. I'm also not seeing a whole lot of yellow in the face, I know the YF/GF genes are a bit weird but I would expect a chick with GF from the cock and YF from the hen to have at least one of them. Here are yesterdays and todays pics. I take back my DF pied assumption, seems like a lot of blue is coming through now. I must be way to tired when I update this because I just now realized it put the wrong year as the thread topic, woops.
  15. Stormy's getting big. trying to take photos out of the box has become nearly impossible, s/he moves around way to much now. Todays photos
