Breeding going well!

This seasons breeding is going well. To date I have 13 youngsters in the nest out of 14 eggs, so a great hatch percentage. The one is that failed to hatch is my mistake as I took it out of the loft to avoid smashing while waiting for the 2nd egg to be laid. A hard frost appeared that night so think accounted for the loss of this egg. We have another 22 eggs being sat at present, so if all goes well we are looking at 35 youngsters from the 1st round.
