Just Hatched!! Little Wattle Bird chicks




They hatched sometime yesterday morning, and these shots were taken just before sundown. Both hatched and from what I can see of them, they look great. So this is them at 0 days old. Will keep you posted!!

HAHHAHHAAAA you're right about Boiled's look-alike wig! They are cuter because actually have eyes and a mouth :) It's great to be able to see them at 0 days old Lavender!

Pretty nifty.....the pics are truly amazing

Lavender said...

Anon Tehehe I hope Eggo doesnt take it personally, after all, beauty is only shell deep Hahaha!!!

Mimi Thanks for the 'heads up' I will check it out, Cheers!

KJ Im so pleased you enjoy them too, and yes, precious is a good word for them!

BetteJo :) Once Momma is off on her break I swoop in and get right up close....although Mom and Dad are both letting me get close to them lately too - pity I dont have that built in camera LOL!

Pawhealer Thanks muchly! You asked about the camera once awhile back and I answered there - but heard some more info and thought Id pass it on to you...apparently the shutter lag and the being 'light hungry' problem is part of being a Kodak camera - so Ive decided the next one will NOT be a kodak - I want something FASTER!!! :)
