Last Chick Of The Season Update

Finally, the late July German Roller chick has left the nest! It is quite a pet as we, Pat and I, have been hand feeding every couple of hours through the day since it was born. I was out of town giving some technical lectures for three days and Pat had full duty. He also feeds when I work. He thinks this chick is the easiest to feed ever!

Here I am trying to encourage it to nibble in hopes it will soon get the idea of feeding itself!

When I approach the cage, even on the first day out of the nest, he is busy in his swing.

But as soon as I approach he begins begging!

Full, it happily flies back to its swing.
