Have you weighed the babies to see if the amount of food your
giving them is 10-20 % of body weight? They may be at max for
that weight. Slow down happens and they may be content. At 26
days i switch to 8 hr feedings and only increase 1/2 cc a
day.Are you greys congo's or timneh's, Do you know the crop
cap for the species...?Make sure the crop is empty...
