    Hi Kitty,

    Not sure if I understand you completely?
    At this age, if they are not in a nest box with their Mother,
    they should be in a brooder with a heat source. It's too
    early for a cage. And if Mom is feeding them while you're at
    school what cage is she in?
    At this age they can be fed about every 6 hours and do not
    have to be fed during the night.
    What formula are you feeding them?
