Default JWs baby budgie

I felt this was the best location to share this little babies progress as I hand feed him for Talk Budgies forum member JW.
JW has asked that I keep the thread he started up with daily pictures of front side and head in case Lindsey wants them to chronicle a babies development for one of her stickies.
But for this thread, the little guy (or girl?) just wants to say "Hewoo!" He'll be 3 weeks old tomorrow:


He woke up at 4:41AM this morning and cried, but Lindsey's webpage encourages us to let the crop empty for 8 hrs. overnight and his last feeding was at 10PM. Sorry little guy --
But at 6AM I filled the syringe to the 3ml. mark and he ate that all up and was looking for more. So I warmed another syringe and he took another ml. to make it 4ml total for the first feeding of the day. I think this will help him go a bit longer between feedings too.
The heating pad held the floor of the plastic shoe box at 80 deg. throughout the night on the half that was on the heating pad. The other half stayed at 70 even though my house is at 66. The humidity fell to desert level overnight because I had removed the rice pack. I put it back in this morning and the humidity is now between 50 and 60. I can heat the rice pack up every time I feed him during the day, but it would just get cold if left overnight and that would probably impact the overall temp of the brooder box.
At 8:30 AM this morning (2.5 hrs. later), he took another 4 ml. and is eating very well, making little 'chuggin' motions with his head and neck and begging noises the whole time. He has plenty of good stools on the the overnight paper towel.
I took him off the pine shavings as they were too hard to monitor droppings. But he has plenty of traction with bits of cotton cloth, crumpled paper towels and the rice pack.
He's already exploring the floor of the box, so I'm soaking a short spray of millet today and will place it in there for him tomorrow - just to see what he does with it.
I've read all of Lindsey's very helpful info on handfeeding and I had some experience years ago, so am feeling fairly confident (knock on wood).
FUN FUN FUN!!!

I'm glad you are having such fun with the little guy, Nedra.

It's great that you are keeping this thread as well as posting pictures in JW's thread as well 'cause that means we gets to see LOTS of pictures.


You are obviously doing a GREAT job since your little buddy is eating like a little piggy.

Looking forward to following your thread!

My sister took the sweetest video of the little one guzzling down his breakfast, and sent it to me from her iPhone, but it didn't come through. I'll have to have her send it tomorrow.
He's taking a little more than 4 ml. at each feeding and feedings are 3 hours apart from 5:30 AM to around 10 PM.
I ordered a gram scale and am excited for it to come so I can track his weight. I'm going to be all 'practiced and rehearsed' for my own babies next spring!!
This little one now starts begging from his nursery box anytime he hears my voice or sees me walking through the kitchen so I really have to make sure I write down each time I feed him or he would have me on a 15 min schedule at this point.
JW called today to ask if I would like to try to feed a 3 day old chick who was pretty much on 'deaths door'. I told him to bring the little thing over, but don't have a lot of hope for its survival. I'll start a different thread for that little one. It's definitely going to be a challenge.

Default Today's little 'cutie patootie' picture

Am I all 'growed up' now? I'm 3 wks and 1 day old today!!! And my little belly is full and I make exactly 7 poopies for my Mommy every 2.5 hours! Mommy steals my poopies though...

Beautiful Baby B1 -- I don't think you are all "growed up" yet but you sure are a beautiful baby boy!

(I'm in awe of those of you who breed budgies...
Personally I could never part with any of the babies so it's a good thing I stick to only my male budgies!!)

I love playing with these little ones too much to give up on breeding them. I get to play with babies, and then sell them to people who will love them, and do it again
