Very nice find Birdy! If possible, do keep a track of their development, and it is not advised to use direct flash while photographing chicks, hence do it under natural light only :)

The babbler youngs look so naive as if they can easily break or die. I appreciate using nature as your theme for photography. Keep it up!
