We just predicted in our earlier post that the third chick was too late to arrive, and then it hatched this morning — six days after our oldest eaglet.

Not all fathers help with feedings, so if he contributes, it might make it easier on the youngest to get his share of a meal.
Here’s the data on our third chick:
