Two chicks fledged yesterday sixteen days after hatching. Looking good although can't check what sex yet as I don't want to have too much eye contact.

Looking strong today. One more confident and has followed the hen through the hatch and is flying from branch to branch. Amazes me how quickly they come on. Silver eared are much slower.

The two chicks have been moved to their own aviary. They are cock & hen and looking good despite the heat.
Have managed to reintroduce the parents after a couple of separations. They are looking quite placid at the moment but whether they will nest again I'll have to wait and see. If they do I'm hoping they wait until it's cooler.
