Thread subject: It's scary when Betty settles down on the chicks!
Name Date Message
Judy 05/23/05 10:59 am Sometimes it looks as though she's strangling them. All I see is a little head peeking out and Betty's heavy body covering the rest of the chick. Surely they would protest if mom was sitting on them and cutting off their air supply! YIKES!
Marie 05/24/05 12:56 am if you look carefully, Betty at times seems to anchor herself on her folded wings creating a little tent beneath her. Othertimes I guess she feels their distress on her brood patch and will adjust. I think that is what we are seeing when she wriggles and rises a number of times, before she finally settles.
