Thank you! Babies are doing good! I actually noticed that after 3-4 hours they still have a little in their crop so i switched to 4-5 hours - their crop is completely empty in the morning when i go to feed them and they are hungry! I set up a video camera on mama and babies and she cuddles them and cleans them and she does feed them a little - but when i go to feed them their crops are empty. So I will leave them with mama and dad because I agree that it is beneficial for them.

Sometimes when I feed them it gets a little messy - at what point can you give them a little "bath" or rinse - is it dangerous for the formula to be on their bodies (bacteria).

Thanks again for your advice! It made me feel reassured!
