Re: NEED HELP!! two week old budgies

Yeah, they are still very young, no older than a week or so...Keep in-mind that they are laid a day or two apart, and they hatch a day or two apart, so none of them are the same age, and they grow and develop so quickly that you'll see huge differences between the oldest and the youngest, which can actually be close to two weeks different in age depending on how many total eggs were laid. It looks like there are still unhatched-eggs in the nest-box, so it's still possible that you may get more babies. For example, if you've got 3 unhatched eggs left, and two of them are infertile but one is fertile, and the fertile one is the youngest egg, then there's going to be a minimum of 6-7 days between when the last baby hatched and when the youngest fertile egg with hatch, possibly up to 9 days depending on how many days there were between the mother laying each egg. And judging from how young the babies are, it's quite likely that you'll end-up with more babies hatching.

So keep an eye on that, make sure you're looking into the nest-box at least once a day to check for more babies, and to make sure that the 3 babies that have already hatched are being fed regularly by the parents. You want to make sure their Crops have food in them, at this age they should pretty much always have at least a little food in their Crops at any time of day. It's not at all unusual for the parents to stop feeding all of the babies, or just one of the babies, so it's very important to check all of their Crops for food at least once or twice a day, because if the parents stop feeding one or more of them, then that's when you'll need to be ready to take-over if you want them to live. We can help you with that if it happens; I know you weren't aware of the babies being there so you weren't prepared for them before they hatched, normally you should always have a container of hand-feeding formula, an eye-dropper and oral syringe both, and also either a real Brooder or a homemade one, as they have to be kept at 95 degrees F until they have all their down, and then at 80-85 degrees when they have their down but not their mature feathers. So if you notice that any of the babies have an empty Crop that stays empty for even one day, or if you notice any type of wounds on any of the babies from the parents abusing them, or if the parents kick any of them out of the nest-box, then you have to remove them immediately and get a homemade Brooder set-up, and get some hand-feeding formula, etc. We can help you with all of this if need-be, hopefully nothing will go wrong and the parents will continue to feed them and care for them properly, but if something does go wrong don't panic, just come back here and let us know what's going on and we'll help you out...

Re: NEED HELP!! two week old budgies

Cute tiny ones (I agree with the previous two: really, really young stuf there).

I would still offer eggfood asap since it is easier for the little ones to digest and it helps to keep the energy levels of the parents up so the chances are better they will keep caring for the babies.

Re: NEED HELP!! two week old budgies

Okay thank you guys so much! I have noooo idea how to determine their age so I was just going based on what my friend told me. And can someone help me, I try and check up on them once a day but it gets really difficult with the mom there. I don’t know how to get her out of the nest without scaring her and every time I go near it when she’s out, she I immediately rushes back to protect her babies. I don’t want to stress the mom out so how can I get her out of the nest for a few second to check the crop?

Re: NEED HELP!! two week old budgies

Oh boy! Time to take matters in your own hand? I would call a Certified Avian Vet (CAV) immediately and ask what and how to feed the baby! Time is crucial now!
