Baby Birds 4 weeks Old

2013-03-17 16.21.14Bill and Ben (although I am hoping they are both girls) are now 4 weeks old and have got most of their first feathers.   They will be going out to the big cage in a couple of weeks when the other birds will get to see them for the first time.   I think we will release them at 10 weeks while they still sound like babies.   Hopefully that will make it easier for them to integrate into the main flock.   The 9 young ones are down to 7 now as the older birds drove off the other males.
