There you made your judgement call on the first pair. No way to know
of course what caused the death of this one week old baby. So sorry
Second pair could well have fed the entire clutch but you made your
decision. I know you feel skeptical about this right now.
I am so thankful this next clutch to start hatching the parents do
feed well. There are 7 fertile eggs there. I don't think I could do
another clutch of round the clock feedings. Getting too old for this
stuff plus my health issues with COPD.
I am a firm believer in a probiotic in one feeding a day and it's
usually GSE or ACV (not even sure if that pertains but it works) but
next feeding I am giving the 4 babys some pureed papaya. I do this as
a preventative to crop problems.
Here's the 4 little white down q babys I am handfeeding now. It will
be up to a couple of weeks before I know if they are blue or
green/split to blue. ~~~~~~~~~ and the tension mounts. hahaha
Good luck to you Evelyn.
