Androgynous Baby

7 Dec

Look who’s getting big!

The peachick is alost too big to fit beneath mom’s wing anymore.

I still don’t know if the chick is a boy or a girl.  There are no bright blue/green feathers like daddy yet, but they don’t show up until they are a year old.

For now, the little one looks like mom, but who knows what next summer will bring about.

I honestly would prefer another hen.  I already have to two males, and I don’t know why they get along.  I’d be afraid that the adults would pick on a teenage little guy.  After all, that’s how Blue Gryphon came to me.  The dominant male chased him off.
