As some of you know my husband and I breed parrots and raise the babies for pets. We have just started to incubate some eggs as some pairs are problematic. I have been incubating 7 Green Cheek Conure eggs and so far 3 of them have hatched! The other 4 are due to hatch within the next 6 days so I am staying pretty busy keeping up with the hourly feedings. I have to feed each newly hatched baby every hour 24 hours a day for the first 3 days and then it drops to every 3 hours....once they are 2 weeks old I can feed them every 4 hours and so on until they are weaned (eating on their own) at around 8 weeks old.
Not sure if anyone will be interested in this post or not I was just excited that I was able to succesfully incubate eggs and hatch them out to healthy chicks. If anyone is interested in seeing pictures of them let me know and I will post some, they are really tiny right now and only hold about 3 drops of food per feeding...which is why they have to be fed so often.
