Calcium by itself is no good. The bird (and all other animals) need vit D3 to absorb it into their system (we call it 'vitamin' but it acts more like a hormone), otherwise it just goes in one end and...

You are missing the point. There are only two reasons to get a 'sticky' baby (when the baby cannot hatch due to the eggshell and membrane drying up and sticking to the baby so it cannot separate...

But why in the name of all that's holy are you 'assisting' with the hatching? There is absolutely no need for it and, as you can see, plenty of risk! Handfeeding from day one is NEVER recommended,...

It's 'conyur' but the 'yur' sounds more like 'eur' as in Europe. And, actually, it's not really 'cake' as 'kaik' but kaikeh because it's a Spanish word and it has no 'ee' sound at the end. There is...
