These two have fledged!  ;D 

One was on the Annex building on the west side, the other one was on the southeast corner of the lower roof this morning.

Foot colour is as a result of the food they are eating.  Birds in captive situations - like rehab - tend to have paler feet.  Wild birds eating wild food have bright yellow feet, it is paler when they are young, brighter as they get older.  Its why we try to make sure birds in care have quail to eat, closest thing to wild birds that we can provide them with.  Why one chick's feet are yellower than the other, maybe one is a couple of days older - or better at getting first dibs on food or I just don't know.  I can say that in a couple of months when they are hunting food on their own, chances are you won't be able to tell them apart by foot colour :)

Its a cool photo and a great catch RCF!

Well these two were still in the box this afternoon and it looks like they have different coloured legs from each other.  :)

They definitely look like girls - nice balance for the 2 Radisson boys!

And the ages would confirm that - the chicks are 41/42 days old today, typical fledging age for standard size female chicks.  Pre-Wingo female chicks were smaller and more likely to jump with their brothers. Wingo is shaking up the gene pool.

I will hazard a guess and say these two are female.  :)

I think Wingo took something in the nest just as we arrived this morning. We could only see one of the chicks for a bit...probably self feeding.  ;D  The other one was yelling at the front of the box, maybe sees Wingo across the street.  Hurricane was on the light above.

Oh, that glint in their eye - I think those two are going to be a handful!!
Going to keep my fingers crossed that they will be cooperative photo subjects RCF!

Still lots of fuzz on those two, you are going to have another 7-10 days before they fledge I suspect - longer perhaps if they are girls ....
