I have a silly basic question. What do y’all consider to be day one after hatching when counting days toward fledging? The Sialis site calls day one the day after hatching & the Cornell site (most sites I’ve read) call day one the day of hatching.
BTW, great news! All six of my babies fledged successfully yesterday (not MY babies, but you know what I mean). That would’ve been day 18 or 19 according to when the count starts (except for the runt, who hatched on the 2nd day). Getting the box ready to go again!
Thanks y’all. Last year, I counted day one on hatch day & this year, I counted it on day after hatching. I guess the key is to keep track, be consistent, & make sure there is no early fledging, etc. I have truly learned so much from y’all. Thank you!
