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.
We have our first hatchling :-). First out of 16 eggs from 3 hens.
I ordered a humidifier in the hopes that it would assist in the eggs hatching (i.e. make the shells more malleable, as we have a small heater on all the time)... but then I realized that since the humidifier is ultrasonic it might affect the birds and particularly the hatchlings.
I do not know what frequency this humidifier emits. Box doesnt say. Anyone have any experience with this?
I have seen threads on here warning against ultrasonic repellants ... but those frequencies are much stronger than a humidifier... so the question is specifically: has anyone used an ultrasonic humidifier next to breedings budgies
I'm sorry but I have had no knowledge nor experience with ultrasonic humidifiers. so I'm unable to give you advice on that matter.

Why do you have a heater on all the time? I don't use a humidifier, but it brings up a lot of questions for me on why would you want to. Chicks have whats called an egg tooth that they break out of the shell with. I would be worried that wouldn't form properly if the egg is soft and then they wouldn't be able to crack themselves out at all and then you would have dead in the shell chicks that could have been viable.
