Budgie Breeding Before breeding any species, it is important to learn as much about the animals, their personalities and the best practices to follow for responsible and ethical breeding prior to making the commitment to take on the responsibility.

Number two is pretty weak, not at all like the first one out. She barely makes a sound whereas the first one was a proper noise box straight away! I think we are preparing for the worst The other eggs could still be viable though... Number one is going from strength to strength though, eating well and almost standing straight up after 36 hours!

I'm sure if they had had the opportunity to stay with their mother they would have been fine- such a shame. I'm guessing that the most advanced one made it through, but the others may not...

Sadly No.2 bought the farm after just a few hours, but No.1 is doing amazingly well and is growing fast!

My problem now is that we have to fly to Kuala Lumper to renew our visas on tuesday, and my brother in law is going to look after the baby! Frankly i would be less nervous leaving my kids behind than our little chick! lol- we have become weirdly attached in the last few days!

So anyway, i've had him feeding birdface this morning so he knows how to do it, and preparing the formula etc. My fear is that he won't be as motivated to get up every few hours for feeds.

My question then is: At 7-9 days, how long can they go through the night without a feed? So far the longest she goes at night without a feed is 3 hours, and 2 hours in the day as of today...

Our three remaining eggs are not looking too viable, but i'm keeping them under the lamp anyway to see if anything occurs!

Oh I'm sorry the little chick passed away. How amazing that the first one is going strong you are doing a fantastic job.
I'm not sure about the feeds but I'm sure one of the other members will respond soon with an answer.

Here is the link providing the feeding schedule:

General Hand Feeding Times And Amounts - Cute Little Birdies Aviary

I would recommend removing the remaining eggs before you depart if they have not hatched by then.
Leaving eggs with Dead in the Shell chicks in with your little hatchling may lead to health problems for him.

Oops! Sorry about that.

OK, let's try again...

The baby should be fed every 2 hours. A day old chick would require approx 1 ml of formula per feed, which can be gradually increased to 2 ml by the 4th day and 3 ml by 7th day.
You don't need to give the baby any additional water as it gets enough fluid from the forumula.
If you stop feeding at midnight, you safely wait until 4AM for the next feeding.

Days 7 -14 the feedings should take place every every two hours from 4AM - Midnight.

At 14 days, the baby can be fed every 3 hours and the baby should be receiving ~4 ml per feed. Feeding should begin by 6 a.m. but the last feeding can take place at 10PM rather than midnight.

I took a wee bit of video today as I'm staggered at Wednesday's phenomenal growth rate- probably quite normal for you guys, but to me it seems really fast!!!

Also I cancelled the other eggs again today and one has movement inside!

Oh and thank you FaeryBee!!
