Re: NEED HELP!! two week old budgies

Just check a few times...
not sure about budgies, but many just-hatched babybirds still have yolk inside them- so they do not drop dead the first day(s)-> they are not even hungry, so no begging!

(there are actually rules about not feeding fresh hatched baby-chickens etc the first x-hours because of that, even with tiny quail its a few days!)

Only if you see them beg and not get fed... time to get a bit worried.

We always think we know better than nature... ;P and most of the time we do not.
So relax and let them do it-- you have great parents there (already 3 larger ones, so they know what they are doing)
