The moment is nigh! Apologies for keeping the eager beavers among you waiting. Today has been a busy day with the arrival of the feather babies of Mr Bingley, Frodo and Legolas. I am pleased to announce that we have nine chicks so far. Number 10 had pipped when I said goodnight this evening and the other two hadn’t pipped yet. They kept me waiting, these feather babies, and I was just about a nervous wreck. When I went to check early this morning, the first three had arrived, and I have been checking them again and again and again today!

Ok, I’ll get to the part you’re all waiting for: the Legolas eggs. I am thrilled to announce that we have three wee Legolas babies. Woohoo! I am so thrilled about this. More details to come, but for now, here are some photos of the adorable balls of fluff.

Number 1 and the cutest chick so far is a Frodo baby. It looks like a splash colour, which is white with splashes of usually grey.

After moving house this evening, Frodo teaches the oldest babies how to eat. There are three of the silvery splash chicks so far, one blackie and a few blueish ones.

One chick has a temporary name so far: Orange Spot (right), a Legolas chick who has a curious orange spot right beside his/her eye.
