In reply to Sandra :
Its a huge fish Sandra :-) Just hope #4 stays at the back and doesn't try and go round for it will get fed :-)
16:41 #4 getting a bit of fish now :-)
#1 and #3 moving leaving #4 to be fed along with #2?
must go and see to dinner BBS
They are all in a food coma now .
Maya and 33 are such good parents, the difference between 1 and 4 chicks is huge, and yet they seem to have no fierce fights like we have witnessed before.
That fish was a whale too LOL which 33 has just flew off with.
