Default A very large clutch!

Hello I thought I'd just share this photo of some of our budgie chicks - 8 eggs all hatched successfully! It's the biggest group I've seen. they're all being checked on to ensure that they're all being fed properly. Bit of a rubbish photo, but they wouldn't keep still

Aww, you sure have quite the happy bunch there! It's funny how they all seem to be developing the same colours. Normal green budgies!

I have moved your thread to the Budgie Nursery section.

Thanks yeah hopefully they will all be the standard green; you can just see the youngest one and his head sticking out at the top. He is quite small still, but when I checked him his crop was full (you can almost see it in the photo). I've seen clutches of usually, 5, sometimes 6, but never 8!

Yes, it's already impressive to have a clutch of 8 eggs when usually the norm is 6 and to have all 8 eggs to hatch is another feat in itself!

Keep a close eye on the parents and check for signs just in case they aren't able to provide for all the chicks and then you'd need to step in and raise some of the chicks to relieve the parent's work.
I'm wishing you the best of luck with them! Be sure to give your budgie couple a good rest from breeding after these chicks are weaned and independent.

Wow -- that is amazing!

I'm so glad you are checking the little ones regularly to ensure they are all well-fed.

What a HUGE difference in size between the youngest little fellow and the oldest. Congratulations on the eight beautiful chicks and thank you for sharing the photo with us.

Thanks all. I do love it when they're at this age, little fluffballs and hopefully little one will grow up nice and healthy too like his brothers and sisters. I will definitely be taking more pictures of them. Would be nice to have a picture of them all lined up nicely - biggest to smallest!

Many congrats to you and the budgie parents for achieving such success. The parents have done an amazing job. But as others have suggested, check the chicks to ensure they are well fed and you might have to share the responsibility of feeding them. Good luck and all the best for your birds.
