Three years ago a kind sponsor named two chicks: Jackson and Bequette and luck had it that both came back. Bequette - being a girl - had no trouble finding a mate - but Jackson as a young male had a bit of trouble, until he shacked up with an older male. We always need foster parents for eggs and he and his mate raised one of Chicky's eggs this season and it fledged naturally - no need for any help from us. Jackson's mate is in their house moulting, but Jackson looked a bit skinny so he is in rehab for some TLC, blood test and a top up. He is almost finished with the moult, and will return to the colony and his mate very soon - surely the mate will be super impressed with the gorgeous coat he is wearing now!!
