And he’s gone at 11:49. It took him three minutes sitting in the hole, leaning out, and in, and out until he finally let go. Fascinating to watch. Reminds me of how long I sometimes take to get into the pool an inch at a time.

Two minutes later the next one left. This must have been the third egg so maybe he’s going to wait a while to join them. Mom’s been back twice to feed.

What a surprise. As I was watching the first one jumped up and out of the box. And the next chick looked up as if to say “where’d he go?” This was at 1038am CST. And how the remaining two are taking turns looking out at the world.

Are these three chicks all males?
