    I don't remember who originally linked up to them-I just fixed it so we could look at 'em and still stay with our favorite hens. I've set up a thread called called "Look but Don't Leave" for things like this.

    Anyway - the original linker :P created this thread. I just can't read who while (whilst) I'm writing this post! Sigh.

    I find this useful at the times when a topic has crossed over into another thread, like they do...

    The peregrine chicks have suddenly started growing. One is off exploring behind the backof Mum.
    She is very tidy but is keeping that large leg as a souvenir/ornament.

    Wow, they are huge now - they won't fit under her for much longer! How old are they now? Isn't this different from chickens, where the babies sleep under mum for weeks and weeks and yet they grow really quickly?

    Ew gross, i hadn't noticed the leg...

    Just make the page smaller. If you look up at the right of the page there is a flat line, 2 boxes, and an X. click the 2 boxes and your page will be smaller. Then just go to the corner and when you get a double headed arrow you can move the corner in, use the scroll bars to move the picture in the box, and there you go - put it wherever you want on the screen. When you want to go back to full screen click the middle button again (should be one box now) and it'll maximise.

    Red, if they walked upright, they were either Runners or maybe Khaki Campbells (there are some breeds of ducks that have been crossed with Runners.)

    The other day, when we got home from a day trip, 2 of my baby ducks appeared to be dead. Don picked them up and put them in a plastic bag and went out to dig a hole to bury them in, so the grandkids wouldn't see the dead babies. I went out to the barn to look at them and see if I could determine what had happened to them. I saw that they were still breathing a couple of times a minute and decided I couldn't let them go without a fight. CPR on baby ducks was a little tricky, but with a heat lamp and holding them and talking to them, they started to recover. By the next morning they looked just fine and were able to go back out with the other babies. I think it was needles off one of the Fir trees, that they had gotten into, that had poisoned them. It was a scary afternoon. We have moved the baby pen away from all the trees now, so I hope it won't happen again.

    They don't seem so little now, do they? When Mum isn't there for comparison, it's easy to see them as adults.

    I've been watching them for over an hour. Such interesting birds. I wonder though - who it was that was able to scramble up the side of that cathedral and put bands on their wrists...?

    I haven't actually looked at the peregrine chicks for about 2 weeks - kept forgetting - and thought I was watching mom or dad sitting there. When I switched to the other view i suddenly realised it WAS the chicks!!! Wow, they're big now. I hope they all survive out in the big bad world.

    I thought I had seen one go for a fly but it must have been a parent, so difficult to tell.
    The ringing was done by someone absailing type stuff. Picture on their site.

    The only way I can tell them from mommy is the little bits of white fluff still sticking out here and there on each of them. Some more that others. The one that sits on the edge all day - very little white fluff.

    *Wrists* That was just for you CC. Glad you liked it. :)

    Thats funny Pam. Ok, SM it is. I just read that the males are smaller than the females. It looks then like SM might be the boy?

    Exciting things happening on P Cam at the moment. LOTS of wing flapping and living on the edge. (Go to the right hand view.)

    The last chick to be born looks very sheepish and out of place.How about a telepathic hug!! Ow it bit me. It is still very much a chick although it did peek over the edge this evening. I name this chick LOOS. Last out of shell!!

    I like all animals, but the peregrines have got to eat or they'd starve to death. So, I'd rather lose one dove or pigeon than see the falcon starve to death. (Not a pretty sight though I suspect).
