|Guess how many chicks are in this recently hatched nest?|
|The handsome Stafford male was given to me by Dian and John Clark in November 2010. What a beauty!!!|
She laid five eggs but after replacing them all on one day, I noted that even with the male in the cage, she was not sitting very well. So a dish of hulled hemp was provided with just regular seed mix, no greens or high protein foods and the nutrena 22@ crumbles were also removed from their cage.
Even though all the eggs were returned together on the same day, they hatched over a three day period and consequently the size difference in the chicks are enormous!
