Thirty-three days after pairing up the first six pairs, all have had fertile eggs but one pair have addled their only one. Four of the pairs have chicks, ten in all. The most promising pair hatched their first today, and an egg punctured a few days ago also hatched today against all expectations. Nine fertile eggs still to hatch - hopefully.

The next four pairs (paired up Sunday 7th Feb) have started laying in the last few days, three have eggs.
