First time budgie parents. Baby just hatched a few hours ago and female is sitting on it some. Also, she panics when we get near and tries to hide it.

I can hear the baby chirping so he's alive, but she freaks out when we get near. I assume it's because there's 4 other eggs in there. I just don't want the first baby to die. Here's a pic of the set up, I just put a food stick inside because the Male may be a dead beat dad. He's not feeding her or really caring about the baby. He's watched a few times, stuck his head in and chirped then went back to his normal activities.

The hen will continue to sit on the baby and the eggs until they are all hatched, and the chicks have started to feather up. The babies will need her body warmth to stay alive, so don't worry about her being in the nest, that's where she is supposed to be.

If she's freaking out whenever you go near, then it's best to keep your distance for now. She needs to concentrate on feeding her chick and keeping eggs warm. You don't want to disturb her so much that she abandons the nest.

The dad will eventually start taking care of mom and the chicks, and will be more involved when the chicks start getting bigger.

I assume this is your first time allowing your birds to breed?

When you upload pictures as attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape. Additionally, the picture appears as what we term a “thumbnail” attachment.

To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as Imgur and follow the steps in these instructions:
How to Post Full Size Pictures from a Photo Sharing Site
You can practice uploading pictures in the site’s “Test Forum:
Test Forum

By the way, all photos entered in any of our forum contests must be a full-size photo and not a thumbnail attachment so it's good to know how to upload them!

If you have any questions after reading through everything, please be sure to ask!

Glad you decided to join us and looking forward to seeing you around the forums.
