    > i am pretty sure that you should take the nest out if you
    dont want anymore babies, and dont ever put one back in. if
    they lay agian, just shake the eggs if you dont want them to
    hatch. i would wait a few weeks to make sure they are all
    eating on their own before you sell them. best of luck to
