Had two baby bellneck birmingham rollers hatch today. They will be going into the kitbox in about 5 weeks to start their journey of rolling here in the back yard. Hopefully they will make it and all will work out. Looking forward to this summer!
Do you still have the bells and blacks in the small coop? Make sure they have plenty of grit, plenty of food in front of them all the time, and maybe consider a vitamin supplement in their water. That's all I did with mine and they took right off. With this weather starting to warm up like it is, they oughta start gettin jiggy wit it any time now.
great shots, they built a nice little twig nest. there is just something about lookin in a birds nest and seeing little ones in there that make you say ohhhh, with out even thinking about it. new life is so sweet.
Thanks for sharing the pix - I always visit this site over my first cup of coffee in the morning - and there is no better way to start the day than seeing precious pidjie newborns! Oh, and the mum is lovely too!
Just in from the loft and they are all doing well. Should see another one hatch tomorrow, and then next week we have a handfull more on the way...by Friday we should have all the ones hatched that are gonna hatch...at least on this go round.
