    hey there linda....the moistening the shavings may have
    been what i have done wrong all this time. thought you
    told me they needed to be kept moist but not damp way back
    when we were first trying to hatch eggs. guess i boo
    booed...anyway, my babies are doing really well but i was
    so very afraid of killing them that i just left them with
    mom and dad. yesterday i found out what you meant about
    why to take them...mom plicked feathers off of 1 baby
    because it wouldn't get out of the box. we took it out and
    it isn't hurt...just a little naked but i'm sure
    tramatized. they are only 4 1/2 weeks old. isn't this too
    soon for her to chase them out? is she trying to lay eggs
    again? dad is still caring for babies but mom just sits in
    nb or hangs around at the top of cage away from babies.
    they are very gentle and sweet. i very much want to learn
    about feeding. have you heard of spoon method? if so, how
    much better or worse is it compared to syringe? sometimes
    the stuff comes out of the syringe so fast i was really
    afraid i'd choke them to death. i am determined to learn
    how to do this.....hope nobody suffers for it.
    i'll remember from now on not to wet nest, just mom and
    dad. they like it better that way anyway, thanks a bunch,
    jill
