Thank you Elizabeth!! I appeciate the info and have takenn
your advice -- you have been very helpful. I am happy (and
relieved) to tell you the babies are thriving!!! I am so
excited. As you know they are amazing to watch. I hope you
don't mind a couple more questions---Do you think the last
other two eggs will hatch? Do all the eggs usually hatch? Is
it ok to keep the daddy in the cage with them...he is singing
like a proud papa...everyone seems happy.
Thanks again for taking time to respond to my post
