A bit of a recap of everything...
So it begins... Mom finished laying her eggs and all that was left to do was wait!

Then... 5 days later, on June 10th, we had our first little miracle, now named "Sandpiper" by her owner

Our flock grew again on the 13th, with another little girl named "Deku" by her owners

2 day old little brother.. hatched June 17th. Yet to be named!

On the 20th, the last chick decided to grace us with his presence!

Youngest chick at 3 days old...

Older brother started to show signs of being stunted and having air retained in his crop... Mom began only feeding the older sisters, so the decision was made to handfeed the girls. Older brother at 8 days old.

They're adorable! I'm curious how you sexed them?
Since pineapple is a sex-linked gene mutation, all pineapples will be female (unless Toto has hidden genes). For the two boys, however, it is mostly a guess. We will be doing DNA on all of the chicks once they are a bit older!

That's super cool! I didn't know pineapple was sex linked!

Have I mentioned how much I love Mayhem?! He stays still right until I bring out the phone... and then he starts trying to jump off my hand.
