Thanks Della
I think it will be a happy Easter as I get to marry a couple and name a baby and at the end my husband will release 8 white homers.

Hope it is fine weather.

My first Frilback baby hatached today Easter Sunday


My first white Frillback baby hatched today Easter Sunday how special as I did not get any chocolate eggs. I checked on them this morning and the baby was nearly hatched. Five minutes later I put some feed in for them and mum hopped off the nest for dad to take over so I snapped a picture it is about five minutes old. The other egg was not fertile so I removed it.
Can't wait to see if it has a cap as it is in it's genetics but mum and dad (Romeo and Juliet) don't have one.

Thanks Della
The Wedding and Naming went well but we did not release birds as it has been raining here for two weeks and was a very rainy day.
Love the name Godfrey LOL very inventive.

oh how wonderful!, of course Im partial....you can tell if he/she is going to have a creast or "cap" as I have noticed with my babies the ones that have it you can see where the feathers will grow in on the back of the head, the growth pattern is going in an opposite direction, towards the beak, so you can see that before any feathers actually start to grow, perhaps when you band him/her you can have a look. the parent birds are beautiful!

Thanks Spirit. They are very protective more than my fantails or homers. I have heard that Frills are not good parents so I am a bit reluctant to disturb them until I ring it. That's if I can wait that longs to see if it is capped. But fingers crossed.
Have your pair gone to nest again?

Yes, and it seems to look quite different to a homer chick - undeniably cute and fit though! No frills yet!
