Lady Gouldian Finch Babies

I am blessed with excellent hearing, thank you Lord. Thought I heard some tiny cheeps and walked up to the Lady Gouldian nest box a few minutes ago. Sure enough...the hen's seven eggs are hatching! I'm sure to have more to blog about soon. Expected them on June 7, so they're earlier than anticipated.

This is the second clutch for this young pair. Last time they hatched six of seven eggs and raised five. I'm going to wait until tomorrow before peeking into the box. Don't want to disturb the hatching process. Hope to get these banded and am considering hand feeding some of them.

This photo is from her first clutch.
I don't like to post without any photos.
Peace & Blessings!
