ah ha you did move the eggs :-) I gave one or 2 to others that
laid only infertile myself. Gave them a chance to be parents
and they were great. (have to insert here I hope you didn't
literaly move nest boxes. even if it's working that is a
territorial thing like a bedroom)
I only ever pulled babys for handfeeding never leaving with
parents. The ones left with parents I understand from others
can be handeled often to tame but I chose to always take them.
I don't think I could have done anything different than hand
feeding and super socializing them and giving them balanced
diet. I still have people contact me wanting one of 'my'
babys. that makes my heart smile and I turn them over to my
daughter. She too does really well with all the babys.
Just be your loving self with the babys Jill and they will be
Hope you feel better soonest.
