    Does it look to you like the crops are filling up? How old are the babies now? What do you mean by 3 that float? Three other birds??

    There's 3 unhatched eggs so I gave them the float test to see if they may be viable. I'm think the two are about 10 days old. I was out of town when they hatched. The crops seem to be bulging when I looked at them.

    Quick question: do the males feed the young? Just Mamma?

    Yes they do if the cock bird knows what he is doing and in his prime. One of my cock birds us useless..one of my other cock birds is brilliant and a great surrogate father.

    The hen feeds for a few days and then the male helps by initially feeding the hen..he then feeds the chicks.
