Hotting up now !!
Well I am staggered. We took in a nest of five chaffinch eggs at the weekend. Popped them in the incubator thinking they wouldn't come to anything. I have been turning the eggs, and took the lid off last night to check them and lo and behold, one had hatched. Since then, another 2 have hatched.
They are miniscule !
This morning, we took in another young blackbird who had been got by a cat but looks as if he will be ok, and a nest of four small bullfinches.
We have the cam on the bullfinches at the moment and will pop the tiny chaffinches in when they are eady to come out of the incubator.
