    The next one will probably be tomorrow. Then they'll incubate for 18 days, and feed the babies for about a month before weaning [​IMG]

    P.S Should I leave food for them all the time since they are brooding eggs?

    As long as you make sure to feed them twice a day, they will be fine until they start feeding babies. You can feed them more if you want.
