Of course we won't be naming them, but they are being referred to as Big Red and Little White. Mr J and I are losing great chunks of the day as we sit and watch these funny little birds stumble around and find their feet.
After lunch, it had been well over 24 hours since they hatched and we realised that nothing else would be happening with the remaining eggs, so we lifted the incubator cover and I collected the chicks to put them under the brooder which will be their home for the next three or four weeks.
They have a bowl of chick crumb, which Big Red has already discovered and a water dispenser that is shallow and protected so that they can't fall into it and drown. The kitchen is filled with little cheeping sounds.
By holding my phone at ground level, I've been able to capture a few moments of life under the brooder.
