Welcome to BYC! Please make yourself at home and we are here to help.

 

Why can't you touch them? As long as you are raising them, I don't see anything wrong with picking them up and cuddling them. Just be gentle.;)

There isn't much danger in touching them after they hatch. It is true that oil from your hands can rub off on them, but it shouldn't harm them as long as your hands are decently clean.
