New borns
Every year is different
This year they don't seem to be interested in the mealworms. Perhaps I should move them somewhere else

What makes the difference to the colors though are the 6 led lights on the roof of the box

Hi Angelo, great pics! So the birds don't mind the led lights? When do you switch them on?

Hi Matt
I only switch them on once the babies hatch just in case so I know they won't desert them. And I switch them off at night
They dont mind them. Most people use them

Even if they hutch now I doubt that the babies will survive. They'll be to small compare to the others

I can count 8 chicks at the moment, but there are 3 days between the oldest and the youngest. I doubt that the small ones will survive. It's nature's law really

And still, to the contrary from the previous years, they don't touch the mealworms !
