Looking good. Looks like their eyes are going to start opening :)

Remember to keep the conditions steady, and minimum time out of the brooder until they are feathered.
I can see some pins starting when i zoom in on photos i took today.
Her eyes started to open yesterday but were closed up again at night. Open a bit today too.

I worry that her left is sticking out too far. She can walk and bring it in but it slides back out. I' sure it will strengthen.
With our babies, they pull back in on their own and i watch them carefully but as she is already 27 days old- probably 14 days old in development, should i give her a bit of time to strengthen her legs before i consider a brace? When is it too late to fix? I dont want to cause any extra unnecessary discomfort. She's not sitting on her belly at all just one leg is sitting out slightly.

Omg Cricket feels like such a perfect name with how you describe her. I'm not sure on the brace question so I hope someone answers, but I would think if she can move it back on her own it shouldn't be too late for a brace.

They can be surprisingly resilient when you help and give them a chance:xflove:

Cricket is now 5 weeks old and weighing 48g. It's been a rewarding journey and i'm so happy to say " i saved her". I did this! Everyone told me she would die but i just wanted to give her a chance.
Can't wait to see her colouring. Is she going to be a single factor or a normal cinnamon turquoise? She is developing slower and is at about a 3week old baby.

That is similar to my slow growing lovebird. She was also in that fuzzy butt stage for longer than normal and was so adorable. With my girl she weaned a lot later than the norm, so when your little one gets older keep in mind she may wean a little older than other chicks of her species.
Good job, you've done really great with her :tup:

Yes she is definitely staying in each stage longer than she should. I'll post a pic of her 4 siblings- Cricket hatched 1 week after the 4th baby

That's amazing! I wonder why she was delayed - just not getting fed enough by mom and dad early on?

Ooh wow she's such a precious little one. I'm so glad that she's thriving now and that you believed in her and kept fighting for her. :heart:
