Hi Henry. So far it has worked out great. She's knows more about this stuff than I do. With this clutch, there were so many eggs that she couldn't get all of them in the coil. I had 10 more eggs in the incubator and 3 have gone bad.
I use a cockatiel nest box for egg laying with bone dry sphagnum moss for medium. Humidity is kept at 80-100% and the ambient heat INSIDE the nest box is kept at 80-84*. I usually remove babies as they crawl out of the coils and around the cage.
:Brandon, you have let her keep her eggs twice? How does that work out for you? How do you set her up and how soon do you remove the babies? Beautiful picture, BTW.
