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.

Default Female passed away leaving 2 baby budgies-feeding advice pls

Sadly our female budgie Doreen passed away this morning. She was completely fine but then started to struggle to land and began throwing herself around the cage in pain. I held her and her feet gripped my fingers and then she managed to get back onto a perch but sadly passed away.

She leaves behind Terry and two lovely baby budgies who are 16 days old. Terry ate some spinach and then went straight into the nesting box and I believe was feeding them. They very quickly stopped chirping once he was in there, but I didn't want to disturb them. I think Terry had been the main one feeding them anyway and so I'm pleased that he went straight in the cage, but I just wanted to check whether I should be prepared to hand-rear them?

Doreen hadn't been sleeping in the nesting box for around the last three nights anyway and so I'm hopeful they should be OK overnight, but I just wanted to get your thoughts on feeding? I don't want to start hand-rearing them and interrupt Terry feeding them but I also don't want them to starve!

Any advice appreciated.

Thank you

Terry should be able to take care of the babies.
Make sure he has food easily accessible outside the nest box so he can get to it with no problem.
Give him egg food as well as a high quality seed mix, pellets and vegetables.

Keep an eye on things to see if you need to do some supplemental feedings in addition to what Terry is giving the babies.

Good luck and please keep us posted.
