Thumbs up Sunny and Polita

I am new to this site and happy to have found it. I just want to post about my two fab suns, Sunny and Polita. They are nesting once more. They have done this several times and even hatched two chicks once. But, alas, they died at five weeks. Merlin and I were devastated! The rest all died in the shell. Don't really know why. Polita laid the first of this clutch on 3-3. She usually lays four before she is finished. I'll keep you posted.

Re: Sunny and Polita

Welcome to the forum. Your suns are beautiful. Sorry to hear about your problems raising chicks. Dead in shell chicks can be caused by many things from bad incubation, humidity, disease or even inbreeding. But losing five week old chicks is probably due to some sort of disease the parents carry without showing symptoms. I would reccomend that you have them checked by a vet and have them both cultured.
Good luck with them.

Re: Sunny and Polita



"Did someone say that there are more Sun Conures around ... I have to check this out!"

Hamlet would like to welcome you to the Forum ... her scream is much worse than her bite, promise.

So many things can go wrong with babies, and it's a shame when we loose them, but really it's tough and should be left to experience breeders OR people who feel confident enough in their abilities to do this ... it's not for the weak of heart.

Welcome to the forum, hope to hear lots of good news about the new eggs!

Re: Sunny and Polita

Polita now has three and is still low in the cargo area. Looks like she is going for her usual four.

Re: Sunny and Polita

Looks like Polita is going to stop at three this time. I know at least one of the eggs is fertile. Now we just to have to wait until the 24th to see if anything hatches.

Re: Sunny and Polita

I would seriously discourage this by not putting any nest materials in their cage.

Baby birds are not easy to take care of and MANY MANY DIE from inexperienced people, not to mention the fact that the rescues are over loaded with unwanted birds.

Re: Sunny and Polita

Just when we were about to give up hope, I heard an unfamiliar noise in the nesting box. There was a little bruiser in there making himself heard. We finally got a look at him and he is a beauty. We'll be posting pix as soon as we can get a photo op. Two more eggs, so we'll wait and see if anything happens.

Re: Sunny and Polita

I hope that all goes well in the rearing process ... wouldn't want anything bad to happen to how ever many little ones you end up with ...

*crossing fingers*

Re: Sunny and Polita

Still just have one chick. Maybe that is all that will hatch. We've left the other two eggs in the nest just to see what might happen. You never know. The chick and parents are doing fine. Photos soon.
