Distinguishing features:

Also known as ‘Little chick’; his fight to survive was evident from the start. Being the last to hatch he found himself in a relentless struggle to maintain his strength amidst his two much stronger siblings - also driven by the urge to survive especially at feeding times. It looked like he almost wouldn’t survive. He successfully fledged, thankfully down to Blue 35’s beedy eye on him and her skillful feeding between the open beaks of her other two chicks!
