What hand raise mix are you using?
Is the temp warm enough, or not too hot?
I found mine took a couple of days to get used to the taste of the new formula and prefered it warmer than some other birds, but not too hot obviously. :)

You could try mixing a tiny amount of pureed fruit or veg or baby food in a jar into it, see if that entices them to eat. I added a small amount of mash pumpkin or carrot, not too much though as you don't want to take away the amout of baby food they are eating or make the taste too strong for them.

If you don't think they are getting enough food, try adding an extra feed so they are not missing out on their tucker.

Are you weighing them every morning before their first feed to see if they are gaining and not loosing weight?
I weigh mine every morning, gives a good indication if they are eating enough or if any problems arise due to stress sickness etc.

Let us know how things go. :)

the brand is vetafarm
the temp of the formula is warm but not too hot
they eat it fine but they stop swallowing before they are full, unless im just not good at telling if their full or not
the youngest always eats enough though and has a full crop after its fed
i weighed them this mourning but its the first time i have weighed them
how much grams should they put on each day?

individual pic's :)

Such cuties.

Looks to me like they are eating well and their crops look fine.
As a rough guide, chicks should eat aprox 10-12% of their body weight of formula.
If a chick weighs 70gms, then aprox 7-8ml of formula. :)

I use Vetafarm as well. :) I found down the track chicks do tend to get a bit bored with the same taste, that is when I start to introduce different flavours in their formula.

Just going through my record sheets, the chicks I raised had between 4-8gms gain per day for the first week or so after pulling from nest. The older they got the more weight they gained until it was time to loose weight for fledging.

Weight will also differ slightly depending on if the chick has been to the toilet before or after the daily weigh in.

That is how I feed my bubs. They tend to eat more that way.
I use vetafarms spoon with the syringe attachment especially for the first few weeks of feeding, I can see how much each bub is getting.

lol 30 min is good, more time for snuggles lol
The first few days are the hardest while to bub and you get used to each other.
