Message #3441. This is a followup to #3440.

Name:Anna and Boo

Subject:Re: Hatching
Message:Okay. Can you go over your nursery setup in detail?

What's the temperature? How is it heated? What is the humidity? How will you set up the babies? What handfeeding utensils do you have? How often will you feed? What will you feed them? Do you have any handfeeding experience whatsoever? What have you READ about handfeeding and brooding chicks? (And please be specific, actual book titles and/or links to webpages)

Please, please, PLEASE convince me you have SOME understanding of what it takes to raise day one parrot chicks.

I shudder to think...
