Video 3/13 (43 sec) - The baby is not very active but, after just one day, the baby's underlying skin has changed from pinky to black and its feathers have changed from pink fluff to wheat colored hairs.
Still blind, the baby doesn't move around much but - as you can see in the video - when in trouble the squab works hard to solve problems by itself.
During the first few days the mother continues to sit on the baby to keep it warm and protect it.
