Over the last couple of days, the chicks have grown massively. The milliefleurs are feathering up rapidly, their beautiful light yellow fluff giving way to pale grey and cream secondary feathers. Even the smallest chick is doing well, keeping up with the others and cheeping as loudly!
Trixy on the other hand, is moulting feathers like there is no tomorrow! I have been collecting the dropped feathers, putting them aside for next spring. She is doing a great job although you can tell she is getting a bit grumpy when the chicks climb all over her!
