What a relief! So glad they're going with a Plan B. I totally forgot about the fostering option. Will be interesting to see what the Raptor Trust finds out about the chick (I think I heard, or read, somewhere that test results on eggs don't come back for like a year?).

Yes ljames, that's it. Good to see it sitting up and eating today. Thought I could see an enlarged crop towards the end.

They are adjusting the camera. I wonder do they intend to still place that other chick in with the baby? I am amazed that the little chick recovered from what looked like certain death. I sure hope that it continues to thrive. It was so sad watching it but especially the mother so perplexed as to what to do for it yesterday.

They may just leave it and put the other one in. The parents can easily care for two eyases.

Athena'll be on alert for a bit, keeping an eye on the infamous door. She's taken right to her adopted offspring though :ohyes: Hopefully the "indigenous" chick can be built up to full strength.

Sad and good news. I hope the little one can recover, maybe even to the point that it can return to it's parents. Fingers crossed.

Probably too much to hope for the chick to be returned. It didn't end well with Legs.

Well, I don't know what to think. This chick has been taken from it's siblings and is all alone now and the one hatched here is headed for a place where there is no parent. Maybe there was not enough food at the nest that this chick came from. Evidently, they didn't think the baby was improving enough to stay. I wonder if they watched the cam this morning. I sure hope that he improves and it would be wonderful to see him returned back to his parents. The new chick looks pretty comfy in there.

The new chick is much bigger. Too much danger it would get all the food and the little one would get nothing. They did what is best. They don't want the pair to re clutch if the little one doesn't make it. This way they "fulfill" the nesting cycle. And it is better for the Sea Isle pair to raise 3 chicks instead of four. The new eyas will receive excellent care. Athena and Six are great parents.

I love how they just accept a baby and raise it and care for it, no matter the size difference. They are just such a wonderful species. :loveshow:

Agree 100% Although born out of an unfortunate situation, it was pretty neat watching the new chick be accepted right away.
