Smile Scarlet chested parrakeet babies

My scarlet chested parakeets laid four eggs in late October. On the 18th Nov two hatched. The other two disappeared, I presume eaten by the parents. The male is about 18 months old and I'm told that the female is about 8 months, maybe more. They are great parents. The female is a great mother whilst dad is wearing himself out eating and regurgitating for four. The babies weigh in at 39g each. They are growing so quickly.

Wow young parents! Do you have pics? Do you keep an aviary?

Re: Scarlet chested parrakeet babies

I keep them inside. They are aviary bred but will quite happily fly to my hand when there is millet on offer! The babies are 39 grams each.
