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.

You can't give babies straight water, they can't handle it. whole seed will take a small baby longer to digest, but it will digest sooner or later. Just keep feeding the formula.

I am very worried about these babies tonight and am going to make a new post for urgent care. I tried the papaya yesterday and apple cider vinegar today and things are a lot worse. Crops are getting huge and not emptying. Veins look bigger over crop and they are shivering after eating. Also the formula and water is separating in the crop. I have pics but the won't load, (hopefully they show up now). Help please

Pretty boy- they are pooping I have read cute little birdies tips and information. I only feed them till they stop but they are wanting more and more each feed and it seems to be stretching their crop. Although I am very inexperienced with this. If anything I stop feeding them even when they want more because their crop looks like it going to pop.

JWKnight- I didn't realize they could have the warm water. Everything I read said to do it. I hope I have not caused damage.

Do you have a breeder or an Avian Vet in your area with whom you can consult directly about the babies condition?
That would be best for both them and you at this point in time.

Please keep us updated on their progress.

I have called 2 vets. One basically said its not worth the money to bring them in and it would waste their time!!which is crazy.
The other one said $200 just to be assessed and then swabs, lavage, etc would be over $500 per bird. I just can't afford that at the moment.

I'm flagging your thread for the breeders who are on staff but not everyone is in the same time zone. At the current time, none of the breeders on the TB staff are on-line.

Hopefully as soon as someone logs in they will see the flagged thread and respond to you.

I wish there was some way I could help but I just don't have either the knowledge or the experience.

hello those vets sound terrible, I can't believe saying it is a waste of time how sad.
Can you please google some pictures of Healthy Crops of baby budgies. I am not a breeder either, but I have hand reared a baby as you are and I do know how you are feeling. You become so attached to them and feel helpless at times.
The skin and veins look ok to me.
How often are you feeding the babies?
Have a look at pictures and compare them with your chicks.
I am sure our breeders will b around soon .

I would be so happy if I am just over reacting.
I was hoping things would get better but now tonight with the chirping and shaking I am so scared. And with the crop not emptying and formula separating I fear the worst.

Did your birds fall face first after feeding from the fullness of their crops? That scared me too since it just started.

Information has been posted in your other thread in the Emergency Section of the forum. Please check it.

It's getting confusing now with two threads going on the same topic.
