    A few days ago a friend of mine's father rung me and asked if i had an incubator spare, because there had been an accident down at thier farm and someone had accidentally killed a partridge with a strimmer that was sitting on 14 eggs. As there incubator was full i said i would take them, when i candled thjem they looked about the same along as the chicken eggs allready in there so i just added them, since then i have discarded 1 egg so there are 13 left that all look viable. once they are a few days old i will seperate them from the chickens, so nothing happens between them.
    My questions are, what do they eat and how exactly should i care for them?i am honestly clueless and would appreciate any help.
