I have been a little hesitant to post updates because every now and then another chick dies even though they have been treated for Diphtheria and survived. We do not know why. Predation is one possibility. So chick sponsorships - although promised for early December - have been slightly delayed. We have not had another death for a couple of days and hope for the best. I think we have 48 chicks left - but this could change again. The good news is that the chicks are growing every day.
Here is our boy Jackson on the nest with his two chicks - he and his (male) mate have received a couple of eggs from a pair that abandoned theirs and the chicks are growing every day.
Apologies to all your wonderful sponsors - update is forthcoming - promise!
