Make sure you put some sort of nesting material inside the nest. 3-4" thick is best. I recommend aspen as long as its bought from a pet store. Your brother is silly lol! Good luck. Their poop is huge cause they hold it in while inside the nest so they don't poop inside the nest. Give them plenty of food and fresh water.

Paper is bad. Buy a bag of aspen from your local pet store. I'm sure others can help you even more. My knowledge while vast, I'm always learning something new.

When candling, make sure to take the egg out exactly in the same position that it was in. Put it back in the same way. Don't roll the egg around or anything.
