It is going to be very hard to teoll them apart at the start and especially when we want to keep an eye on them at weighing time so I will mark them with a tiny marker pen to keep track.
Fifi in the meantime has been a very patiet mum although eratic in feeding. Somehow she seems great at giving birth in a very organised and clean manner but come feeding time, she shows a bit of panic (who wouldn’t I may ask with 6 hungry mouths sucking the milk out of you at the same time eh?) but Fifi –when she does finally get herself in position- stands there patiently for about 5 minutes so the lil ones can get their share. Normally mums stand over the nest and feed their babies, but not Fifi. Fifi is a true believer of if you want it , come get it, kind of mum. She stands far away from the actual bed in the nestbox , budges the babies a bit with her head as if to say: Ï’m here, but you will have to put some effort into it babies!” . At the start I had to persuade her to stand a wee bit closer because there were always 2 of ythe little ones who couldn’t jump the queue so to speak and they were not getting enough feed, now , I must say her tactics have really paid off! The babies look very strong, determined _practice makes perfect- and two of them have actually already started opening their eyes !!! just as a comparison: bubbles, buttercup and Bear only started opening their eyes at day 14 and 15 ! big difference!
Anway here are some photos of the cute babies:
