The babies are now actually 13 days, 11 days, 9 days, 7 days & 4 days old!
Baby #5 is hiding down in the middle to keep warm!

It seems that baby #1 has clear nails, baby # 2 has clear nails, baby #3 has darker nails & baby # 4 looks to be getting darker nails. Baby # 5 is too young to tell yet. Clear nails are usually a sign of a pied baby, but again, too soon to tell. I can see that the wings on baby #1 are going to be dark so if it is a pied it will be a light pied like the mother (meaning it won't have a lot of heavy pied markings). I should be able to tell if it is male or female in about 5 - 7 days more. 3 of the 5 chicks have opened their eyes a bit. So cute! You can also see the beginnings of the pin feathers on body and heads coming in, finally they will get some fluff!
