Can you remember how awkward it is to be a teenager, because that’s about where are chicks are at age-wise. Not adults capable of adult things such as flying, but no longer little fluffballs either. These years, ahem, days, go by so fast. Expect the chicks to be leaving the nestbox in the near future. Not flying just yet, but hopping up onto the concrete wall adjacent to the nestbox. This will give them more room to stretch and strengthen their wings. They have begun to flap, but inside the confines of the nestbox.
Also, there is only one week left to submit your entry for the “name-the-chicks” contest. Do it now!
