    Are you hand rearing them or are their parents doing it?

    If the parents are feeding them then they know what they are doing.

    If you are feeding them you will know when they are full as they just refuse any more food or show little interest in it.

    Don't feed again until the crop is empty.. otherwise old food in there mixing with new food can go bad and make them sick.
