I'm not very up on this - how long do they sit on them before they hatch?
That video is amazing  :thumbsup:

Yeah Bob about 28 days, so im expecting about the end of October give or take a few days depends on when she started incubating properly.
Im pleased  as that would make them roughly 12 weeks at the end of Jan so at least the wont be bought as xmas presents!!!

I would love to be able to leave a chick in the box for them to rear themselves but i have been told when you take them you must take them all as they are likely to harm whats left. Also it would be lovely to let them rear a whole clutch themselves , but i would have to keep a close eye on them as the previous breeder has always taken them early therefore they may not feed them past a certain time!!
Last clutch Sid and Lizzy had were incubated(not by me) so i will watch closly to make sure they feed them well!!
Im sure it would be very beneficial for them to rear a clutch every so often.
These are my first greys so im not sure Karen how they react.
Sid and Lizzy had 2 babies last summer and Mini and Cooper had 3.

I know Julie its great news, we are just waiting with anticipation!! Im thinking Sid and Lizzy eggs may begin to hatch close to the end of the month if they are all good!!
I think it will be fantastic to watch them care for their young or even possibly see them hatching!!! I promise, promise, promise if babies hatch then there will be daily videos added!!  :egg
