Baby tiel hatching way ahead of schedule!

Here's baby #1 from one of my pairs hatched in 11 days while baby #2 started pipping and will hatch out on Wednesday at 11 days as well. This beats all my old records of the earliest hatching at 14 days.

Re: Baby tiel hatching way ahead of schedule!

It caught me by surprise when he started pipping few days ago.....I don't usually check until closer to hatching time but I started checking while I was spraying the eggs. The usual hatch time is around 19-21 days. Most of the babies always hatched out around 17-18 days for me.

Re: Baby tiel hatching way ahead of schedule!

He's one of my second generation baby! I raised the daddy myself and the momma is one that nobody is interested in cause she was attacked and she don't have most of her crown feathers or head feathers. So I took her in and she wanted to be a momma badly and no boys liked her. Until I put her with Peaches who took her as his mate. They're wonderful parents together.

Re: Baby tiel hatching way ahead of schedule!

Oh all cockatiels are cute even without feathers! I want baby cockatiels so bad but all my tiels are so tame I don't think they'd make good parents. Seeing your babies though brings back memories of my hand raising days with rocky. I loved it

Re: Baby tiel hatching way ahead of schedule!

That's true! I have a bonded pair drummer and summer. Have seen them mating on the perch but I'm not ready to give them a nesting box - yet. You're so lucky to have all those cute babies!

Re: Baby tiel hatching way ahead of schedule!

I didn't want to get back into it at first but they were persistent laying on the bottom of the aviary near the food dishes. It became problematic cause they like to be near the food dishes so no one gets to eat without the parents attacking them. Then right before they were ready to hatch, because of the attacking they do, they broke the eggs killing the babies within. So I broke down and got them a nest box. Then we took in more birds that was given to me, the food prices kept going up up up. So this just covers part of their food cost.
