The three pigeon chicks that were hatched late last week are doing well so far. I expected them to look radically different each day, but at this point in their growth, apparently not! They definitely look a little stronger, and their little heads are not wobbling around like rag dolls, but they are still almost all beak, dark unopened eyes, and a few funny feathers!

I am trying to get photos of them every other day or so. It’s all a new baby adventure, and we are excited to see how they grow. The mama and daddy birds take equal care of the hatching, feeding and nurture of the chicks. Quite impressive, seeing as how many mammals don’t manage that!
