    If its not eating, take out the rets of the babies and the
    father and put into a good size cage, he'll continue to feed
    them untill they are weaned. Make sure your always
    providing, egg foods, greens and veggies.. the dark leafy
    greens are best :) they'll also love wheat breads :D
