te parents will feed them but when they start to wean thats when you should intro them to pellets, also if you want the babies to be sociable you should handle them for a few minutes every day

If using crushed egg shell daily you don't need cuttlebone.

you can cook an egg like normal just dont put any extra things to it like salt or butter, scrable the eggs (and take the shell and crush it up real well and mix it in with the egg)


i dont think i missed anyhting...

did you clean out the nesting box?
cuz that could be a bad thing, but im not sure... i'd pm llpb or aerial

and yang no, you do not have to hand feed the babies, the parents will feed them. Hand feeding should actually be a last resort unless you are a professional breeder. It could cause a lot more bad then good if an unexperianced un trained person tries to hand feed.

village: NOO!!! you're nOT supposed to clean the nesting box until the babies are at least a week old! But some of the old nesting material back in there...anything really with their scent in it. Just leave them alone, and in a quiet place, even cover the cage like on 3 sides. Hopefully they'll go back in. =]


yang: nope! The parents will feed them all by themselves. Read my breeding post. I say a little more about it in there.
=]


mtlj's mom: you don't need the eggshell (i've never used it.) as long as you have a powder calcium supplement. =] and i know you have that. laugh
