Our babies are getting HUGE!! I watched them this morning eating, taking naps, and stretching their wings. It still amazes me that just a few short weeks ago they were little baby chicks! Oliveea does not stay in the nest as often as she once had, but I'm sure she doesn't venture too far away from her babies. Just a little while ago, one of the chicks was standing on the edge of the nest looking brave. The chick started flapping its wings like it was practicing for its first flight, all the while I was holding my breath not knowing if it was going to fall out of the nest or fledge!
