Not quite sure if Hello would pay 10 € let alone 10 mill for these little birdies . They don't really have that Brad and Angelina "beautiful look" yet Very Happy

Here is a snap taken last Saturday when they were only a few hours hatched.

Hard to believe they turn into doves really. Wait till the screeching for food starts. Laughing How soon will that be I wonder.

I realized i hadn't updated you all on my doves.
Well after surviving some torrential rain my doves fledged Monday the 1st of Sept. I am posting a few more pics of their journey from being "ugly chicks" to very handsome young doves Very Happy

Chicks over a week old:

Wow lovely to see the update Sundew. the tranformation from scruffy to feathered always gets me. What sort of a time span are we talking about on the pics?

They are looking good, a bit on the goofy stage yet with oversized beaks and feet. but everything will catch up soon enough. Thanks for sharing Sundew. Smile
