E16 is so full that he does not even try to get up when Harriet arrives with a fish.

17:58
Both side by side, in a harmony.

32 days passed from the moment when E16 appeared from the egg and started to beat E15. :rotf:

Hierarchy by eating. Both eat, then E15 bites one time towards E16; E16 immediately turns away, then moments later snatches very skilfully morsels with his back turned 8-)
He/she has learned important skills of survival.

There was an interesting episode. All evening both hanging out together on and off; lying close by..

Image

19:09
Then suddenly E16 did not like how E15 was moving around with his wings and got up and bit his elder sibling :laugh:

Image

E15 didn't wait to hit back, yet only once; E16 immediately submissive. And moment later E15 nibbled E 16's feathers peacefully :D

E16's way of relaxing :D

Both are very amicable now; nibbling each other once in a while, examining each other, lying close together.
During the feeding hierarchy - E15 occasionally pecks at E16 if the latter does not respect it.
