We're Getting Ready to Fly this Coop!

Watching these peeps today, it's getting very close to the time when they will try out their wings. At night, they barely all fit in the nest. All you can see is four little humps on top of the nest. They have begun to venture out on the rim of the tin basket, ivy branch, etc. They spend much of the day awake and watching the world with wonder. Here are the latest photos.......

Their spotted breasts are beginning to turn red.

There's room for two up and two down in the nest. They trade off."Hey, what are you hiding under there?"
Two sleeping peeps!
