    Thank you jt i did not know that there was a special hand feeding
    formula i will go and find some tomorrow. i assume that it is the
    pet shop that i get this from. at the moment i do not know what i
    am doing i will search the internet for information on hand
    feeding, ihave never had birds breeding before and i was not
    expecting these to hatch..i was going to paint the eggs and have
    them as an ornament..i will leave them in the place where they are
    hatching it was warm enough for them to hatch so it must be warm
    enough for the babies..i will post what happens with them if any-
    body wants to know. i sort of panicked when i found the baby
    earlier on. there is a small hole in another shell so it looks
    like baby #2is arriving.thank you again.
    I think i will buy another cage as well to stop then breeding
    again.
