Re: Here come the babies :)

Glad to hear all is well too
It's amazing how they differ in size in just a few days !
My first born chicks are huge compared to the rest.
Wait till they start sticking their little heads out of the nest box to check out the world ! lolol. I have such a cute picture of that , I need to have my friend tak emy camera so she can download them and send them to me. My DELL exploded and is useless , I can only check email and things , no sound either , lolol But it beats going to the library to check emails I really want to get a picture up of my guys too. Yoshi is my adorable Goffin and Rosie is looking better and better because she stopped plucking
What colors are your budgies IcyWolf ? Depending on genetics and which color is dominant , that will decide the babies coloring.
It's soooo exciting to see what colors they turn out to be .It's almost like coloring eggs for Easter , you never really know what you will end up with once the kids start mixing all the colors ,
My favorite is the grey wings , they are really beautiful.
Have you ever seen spangled budgies ? Anyone ?
I have two and I cant seem to find any literature on how their coloring came about . Just wondering

Re: Here come the babies :)

The male is a white faced blue pied and the female is a yellow face blue pied

These guys will be going into their brooder at around 14 days so I won't get to see them coming out of the box, but it's fun watching them learn to perch and play with their toys as they get bigger I just made some new pvc perches for in their brooder, when they're big enough

Re: Here come the babies :)

Baby number 3 just hatched, and we got to watch! And i recorded it so everyone else can watch too!





I think this one's temporary nickname is going to be "goose" because he kept reaching up and grabbing the other babies butt and making him jump

Re: Here come the babies :)

Amazingly adorable! I really liked watching it try to get out of the bottom portion of the shell and "kicking" it's way out. Then it looked like it was wearing the top portion of the shell as a hat lol.

Thanks so much for sharing!

Re: Here come the babies :)

If you listen carefully, you will hear some whispering, that was me saying to my fiance that he looked like he was wearing a hat, and he replied, "he looks like a little china-man" lol. I almost started laughing but I absolutely hate being recorded so I tried to stay quiet. So far they have all hatched on day 19, except for number two but he hatch at like day 18 and 23 hours, so close enough I can already visibly see the air cell in the forth egg so he/she should be hatching in the next two days. Can't wait until they are all out.

It probably sounds weird, but the budgies seem a lot less fearful of us when they have young. Normally if I am standing next to their cage they just stare at me until I leave, don't usually make any noise or really do anything but watch me, while I was filming this though the parents were standing right on their perch, the male was feeding the female and then cleaned off her facial feathers for her all while I was right next to their cage As soon as I closed up the nest box they were both in there checking things out, I still need to get the bottom half of the egg out, I waited and waited but after ten minutes the umbilicus was still slightly attached so I couldn't remove it. Should be off by now but I don't want to disturb them again.

Re: Here come the babies :)

Thanks so much for the video and update. I think that is the first time I've seen a parrot of any kind hatch! I wish now I had videos of my baby horses being born, although I actually missed Roxy's birth. Mom wasn't doing anything when I checked her 2 hours before. Then when I came out again, there was a wet little baby laying in the straw. She had just been born, but I missed the actual birth. And she first seemed to think I was her mother. When she stood up, she came to me, climbed into my lap and tried to nurse my jacket.
