Sorry, 12 will probably be enough tubs. I use shoebox racks for my baby dumerils. I put in newspaper and a waterbowl, that's it. Some people get into shavings, hides, water bowls, bag feeding, etc. I've kept them for the last 20 years, and I don't have feeding issues with my babies, keeping them simple and in a rack system. They shed almost immediately after birth, pretty cool, and some will feed within a few days, others a couple weeks. If rodents don't work for you, try quail. I've never had to use it, but others on here have, and they said it works great. I know adults will take chicken(s) pretty readily, so it stands to reason that babies would take quail. You don't really need to handle them a lot to keep them calm. Get them set up, feeding, doing good (secure), then worry about handling them. More than likely they'll still be friendly the first time you handle them. Only thing for me, I don't like to buy baby tubs before babies come, lol. Like counting chickens....you know the saying. Good luck.
