FISH @ 07:26
07:26 Feed: Maya grabs hold of it - chicks up and the fish is flappin !!
#4 up first, in front and being fed :
07:30 #4 gets a big chunk
07:36 Mays continues to feed all four chicks
07:45 #4 turned away a couple of minutes ago - older chicks still eating
07:49 Feed over - all chicks well fed
You have got to laugh at Chick 4, its right in the front, and trying to get a piece from its sibling on its left.....
Then it manages to get a big piece - fish is still flapping now and again.
