    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
