    Thanks Paul. ALL my various breeder birds and all my hys [except
    2 pair of hys] take care of their babies. I rarely have to
    incubate and feed from day one. Its too much work I hate it and
    get too dam crabby from lack of sleep. lol. FYI, domestic
    handfed grays are hard as hell to get to breed. Unless they were
    parent raised or handfed and never socialized as pets. Then they
    might have a chance at breeding. Its hard to break the human
    bond in grays. I know this from experiance. Good luck with
    yours. I would reccommend to any new breeder to breed as many
    congos as possible, have the parents raise them, and hold back
    the babies for future breeders. I dont mean just for ones self
    but to sell them when they come close to maturity. In 5 to 10
    years there will be a great shortage of breeder congos cuz
    pretty much all the wild caughts will be dead by then. They will
    command a premium. Im too old now otherwise thats what I would
    do. Think about it.....
