In reply to JaneV:
No Jane, I think it will be difficult to tell them apart especially #1 and #2. I always tend to look at the back of their heads as I think the eldest will be the darkest!!
Don't know if that is right but that is my logic anyway lol
the fish is still living - hope Maya holds on to it!!
and another more fish for the chicks
All three chicks are being fed - here Maya is pushing fish through to the one at the back :-)
18:32 Feed over and Maya moves towards the chicks
then settles down

Apologies Karen....Slap hands, forgot to put time, but see you amended. Thank you.
08:19 33 arrives and grabs the fish while Maya takes off for a comfort break
33 doesn't eat any but drops the fish as Maya returns
08:21 33 flies off and Maya has some fish
and slips some to an open beak lol
08:23 Duck or something approaches the nest
Maya flaps and it takes off
08:24 Maya continues eating - she is having a good feed and of course the chicks get bits too :-)
08:30 chicks sleeping and Maya cleans up
Maya and the chicks have been well fed this morning.
