Default Buddy, Holly and my first time!

Well it has happened, my two budgies that you guys gave me advice on have just had their first baby hatch! This was the original thread https://talkbudgies.com/budgie-breedi...-concerns.html

After that thread Holly laid her first ever egg. I eagerly waited for the next egg but was disappointed after a week there were no more eggs. She sat on the egg for about two or three weeks while Buddy catered to her needs being the doting partner. Suddenly one day I checked the box to find there were two eggs! This new egg was larger and whiter than the last. Then two days later another, another two days another and so on till there was 7.



The original egg was tossed after the first new egg was laid. I decided to crack it to check and when I did I discover there was no liquids what so ever in it, the only contents was some dry yellow powder.

So fast forward to this morning and I looked into the nest box, Holly Looked up and then got out and when she did the first newly hatched baby budgie I have ever seen in the flesh was sitting in the box. Absolutely amazing!!!



Now I think it is time to start this wee journal to chronicle the growing up of these babies. Fingers crossed for two boys out of the bunch as they will be staying

Hi there, I remember that older thread of yours and have been wondering how your pair was doing.

The yellow powder you found on the egg was the yolk which was also dried up, eggs can dry when the conditions in which they are kept aren't the best, when there is lack of humidity, for example.

I'm glad things have been going well with your pair and you now have your first little chick, congratulations!!
I'm wishing the growing family all the best!

Update time. So we are two weeks into the future and the official number of babies is two! They are doing amazingly so far! I cannot believe the speed at which they are growing! Of the 5 other eggs 2 looked infertile, one died early on and the other two for some reason died at what looked like only a few days to go. I have no idea if you can sex these guys at this age but I refer to them as boys. I am not sure, maybe you guys could have a guess but I'm thinking colour wise they will be like their mum?? so here are the important things, the pictures!!!

Congrats on chick number 2! It really is great to see how much they grow and your little ones are getting cuter with each passing day!
It really does seem that they are little copies of their mother.
At this point in time it's still too soon to accurately determine gender.
