Striving for Independence

Our four little chicks aren’t even two weeks old, still fluffy, white and very wobbly, and yet they’re already showing signs of independence.  They’ve approximately trebled in size since hatching, and are already moving around, flapping their wings, preening (each other as well as themselves!), and trying to feed themselves on leftovers from dinner.  Mum and Dad are spending hours at a time out of the nest to encourage them.  It’s working!
