Budgie BreedingBefore 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.
hi, my hen did not feed her new born baby. It hat very little food in his crop. I waited for approx. 12 hours and it did not change. Baby chick was begging for food. I could not wait any longer and did not want that it starves. So I fed the baby chick, very carefully. It was very messy. Then I first thought it is sleeping, but it was dead. I think she aspirated the food.
So I am really afraid, there are 5 more eggs. What if she doesnt feed the nestlings well? shall I then intervene or not..how long to wait before chick starves? how can I prevent aspiration? I just gave her on her right side a small blob and she swallowed it. I did not force food in her. I dont know what went wrong. I am still crying.
so I see spoonfedding from infront of the beak. I thought it has to be from the left side of the cick, but in what position? 90 degrees? on youtube there are so much variations, what is the right one? I dont think I will ever handfeed, but dont know what to do if she does not feed.
the crop was filled maybe 2 milimeter. Is this enough to not die?
