Just nipped in to the aviary to check everybody is ok before they roost up for the night.
Looks like the "hiss monsters" are starting to fledge as these two were on the loose in the roost box having climbed out of the nest.
Have popped them back in for the night as they are toddling around hissing at everything and causing general chaos. Will pop a half mesh bottom door on the roost box (its a huge roost box on legs about 5ft wide by 6ft high - incl legs) tomorrow and they can come out and toddle around without danger of falling out of the roost box and getting injured. Pipes you can see are the heater tube protectors.
Looks to be a couple of days between these two perhaps 3 or 4 days between them hatching judging by their sizes and weights.
Crap mobile phone pictures (tis a tad gloomy in there) but wasn't going to mess around and upset everybody at roosting time you'll just have to wait for me to get some more pictures when they are properly getting out and about more which by the looks of these two seems to be in the next week or so.
Love their spikey heads lol and their threat hissing is really comical

Well this morning went into aviary and did my usual head count and thought hmmmmm hang on recount.
Hiss monster number 1 has fledged and is out in the aviary with the adults causing chaos. Tis now totally shattered and snoozing on in the intermitant sunshine we're having.

Baby number 2 ... totally different scenario ..... inside the roost box (but out of the nest box yelling to be fed. After an hour nobody have been in to see to it .... I know I said I wasn't going to help out ..... gave it a full crop of rearing mix as it's crop was empty and everybody was more bothered with its sibling. Will double check it again tonight and make sure its being fed and if not will give it a top up. And no it wasn't me who blocked its left nare with food but after taking the picture I did clear it.

@Stinkie come on Essie you get to name them :) Normally birds in the aviary don't get names unless they come with them I can't keep calling them hiss monster number one and hiss monster number 2!

Hiss monsters made me laugh what with the one out in the aviary and one staying in the roost box as not quite ready to learn to fly messing around the other day and yesterday was a surprise.
It wasn't a pleasant day weather wise yesterday and I popped into the aviary and couldn't find either of them.
Both of them had got back into the nest box. Think they decided it was a duvet day :risas3:
