This would be the earliest I have ever seen a poult, and I don't have to admit this but I will, just to show I am fair. I actually saw another group of poults before this that were about the size of a grouse, all 10 of them flew up in the trees around me as mom tried to distract.
Interesting to say the least, and I was stunned on the first bunch, and just slightly surprised with this second clutch. All this ones siblings bolted into a rose bush, this one got confused and ran literally up to my feet, squatted down in the grass and looked up at me like I was it's mother. When I crouched down to take its picture, I let it know I killed it's father. Keeps them in line for the future.
BTW, it is possible to get pictures for those who can't do as much
