    Awesome will have to try some of that. She killed all the babies bar two which I saved in time. But it may be because she hatched one a few weeks previously and these came this week. So I was thinking maybe she thought they were threats? Not sure though unless they all have something wrong with them . Unfortunately 3 were pecked to death. These two lil joys didn't hatch though the night so we got to them :)
