A bit of background on falcon chicks!  According to the Raptor Resource project in Iowa, baby falcons are called eyasses. They are covered by white down when they are born, which is replaced by feathers in three to five weeks. Although they have a high mortality rate, Peregrines have been known to live as long as 15 years. They usually begin breeding at about two years old!
