This Friday will mark the 6th week since the first chick hatched. The chicks seem to be doing well up to this point, but WC is half the size of the other two, AA and DG. As the temperatures begin to heat up the chicks will require more fish to keep hydrated. We're concerned for WC as he/she continues to not receive an ample supply of fish. As the photo below shows, WC is half the size of AA and DG. 

DG continues to peck away at WC causing the smallest chick to lose most of its feathers on the upper portion of its back. WC is holding on, but it remains to be seen if this chick will fledge.
