Artist's Description

Update on “Tranquillity”
We lost our little rooster Doodle, it was a sad day for all of us. Dinks his young lady really missed him, she was so different, not her usual self. I set out to find her a new mate before we went away. I discovered that it was not easy to replace him, they are listed as a rare breed in NZ. “Real” Araucanas – Duck-Wings (that is, birds that meet the description in the Standard of Perfection) are few and far between. We eventually found a Gold Duckwing and she is much happier again. Luckily I had placed 3 of the eggs under our Silkie bantam who had gone broody, her eggs were infertile, but the three Silver Duck Wing eggs all hatched, and she is delighted with her kids. When I realised that the breed was hard to come by, I still had a bunch of fertile eggs, I ordered an incubator. The first chick hatched at 1 pm today. The chicks in the images below hatched on the 6th of November, just over 2 weeks old and still so tiny. Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 November 2012 Southland New Zealand. A short youtube clip on the little chicks fighting over an earth worm… it is almost bigger than they are…lol
