advice needed

hello everyone! my grammar isn't the best, so excuse that ^^;;

my green cheek conures have laid 6 eggs and me and my partner have
decided we want to take the responsibility to hand feed them. we want
to begin when they are 3 weeks old.

some questions i have are: what temperature should i feed them?
all the information i see on this are about babies that are 1-2 weeks old.

how much should they weigh before and after feeding them?

how often should i feed them and how much?

is it okay to sell them after they are fully weaned? do i need to get a license?

when do i put them in a cage?

thank you!

Re: advice needed

1st of all t's not necessary to hand feed baby birds for them to be human friendly. Just make sure you handle them every day for about 15 min. (after they open there eyes.)

As far as temperature of the formula it should be around 102-104F. I think you can go a little warmer than that but 102 is the lowest temp you want.

I view feeding baby bird formula as a last resort kind of thing. If the parents are rejecting the babies or something like that.
