Interesting for the novice. There are just 2 points made that I would dispute. Both eggs should hatch at the same time and not 1-2 days after the first, and they should hatch 19 days after the first egg is laid. Also I find that if a pot of food is put into the nest box, the youngsters will start picking at it as soon as they can get to it, usually 14 days or so and I would wean at 21 to 24 days.

for me I always put the nestmates to-gather and judge one against the other

Once baby's r weaned here the main faults I look for dropped tails flights if they don't go back to normal in a few weeks I out the babys. And I hate baby's that run around the floor looking for food when all the others r eating out the hopper. And I never dip baby's beaks in water drinker that's up to them to find it
