Great Spirit Bluffs Home of Zooey & Newman with 1 eyas and 2 other eggs

New Mom Zooey is trying really hard to learn to feed her little one... I have seen one nibble finally go into his beak since he was hatched a day 1/2 ago... Keep it up Zooey!  At least 1 more little one coming soon so Zooey should be ok with feeding by then. Prayers for you little one!  :-\

This pic is from rewind, I think about the same time as your gif.  I think the lil one got a few bites that feeding.
I also thought I saw a pip in the egg to the left of the chick.

Just as Zooey was rolling the eggs and chick, I saw another egg with a pip in it.

Great on the pip and I hope it gets more food soon.  It sure tries too.  It's like she doesn't understand it can't just come to her to get it. :(  She'll get in soon I hope.

She stood up and the eggshell fell off and you can JUST see it down in there.  :)

Shep being you started this thread, you could do this.  Could you please "sticky" it so it's pinned up with the other RRP nests?  If you open your first post on it and open "modify"  then scroll down to "attachments and other options" it will offer "sticky this topic".  THANKS!!!!!  ;)

Great Spirit Bluffs Home of Newman & Zooey with 3 little ones...
Good & bad news... There is no "official" news...
3rd egg hatched!  See little one in shell making his way out :)


It appears the 2nd hatch has passed away.  The first hatch has had some food.  Prayers for 3rd hatch. 
Fly high & free little one, you were loved by many!  :-*

Ha, guess we were posting at the same time Lori!  :)

I think 3 DID hatch, but not all good news.  The one lying on its back bottom right got a bite of food from Zooey about 11:35 if I figured right.  The one that is bottom left I believe is deceased, not moving, and getting stepped on.  BUT in back is another moving around I saw when Newman came in!



That back one was wiggling good for Newman...


The back one is now in the middle and moved a bunch when Zooey came in.

Sadly it appears your correct Nora. We have one that is deceased. Zoey was even picking at it like she was unsure what to do with it. She eventually just drew it up under her with the other two chicks.
