Default Updates on Orphaned Budgie! (Ongoing Thread)

Decided I could drop some photos of the baby budgie I'm taking care of! My setup isn't that professional since I was never prepared to hand-raise a baby, but it seems to work for the baby.
I use the nesting box that they were born in as their shelter, and have a heater nearby (with constant surveillance of the temperature) to keep the baby nice and warm! I also use a simple spy camera to keep an eye on it while I'm on the computer.

The baby doesn't have a name yet, I plan on naming it when I can see what their feathers look like. Speaking of the feathers, I wonder if I have a possibility of the baby being blue? The father is green (not sure if it is a green split or not), and the mother was a creamino (but has dark green and sky blue grey-wing in genes as far as I know for genetics), so I feel like there are quite a few possibilities for what color this baby will be!

These pictures are from after a feeding session, baby is preparing for nap time.

It's great that you've made an ongoing thread for updating us on the little chick. I'm glad that s/he is thriving and am looking forward to following the progress!

Today the baby is doing just as well, their down feathers are coming in nicely. They like to cuddle with my hand for a few minutes after feeding time, and if I don't let them cuddle long enough then they start crying softly for a tiny bit.
I love watching them rush to the entrance of the nesting box when it is feeding time, though- their little legs are getting so strong!
These two pictures are one a bit before I opened up to feed, they were fast asleep, and then the cuddle time after feeding.

Keep up the good work, it's a lot of responsibility, but very rewarding.

Wow, how cute. I don't know much about baby birds. But it looks like they are thriving in your care. Thanks for taking on this monumental task.

Say, I believe I forgot to ask about something. The baby budgie seems to have some really deep blue on the skin of their wings! It doesn't seem to impact them in any way, but is it a way of telling if they will have blue coloration or something along those lines?

Some extra pictures.



By the way, because of this dark coloring I've decided to come up with a name for the baby! Their name will be Gerhana, as it means "Eclipse" in another language.

Today Gerhana is doing wonderful! Look at that fluffy butt! Those down feathers are coming in nicely. My mom made the suggestion of using a container as a little "playpen" for when the baby hangs out with me and for during feeding time, since this bird likes to use their little legs. Certainly helpful since at least he won't have a chance run off the desk, haha.

Love the pictures, he/she seems to have good strength. Just like a baby, eat and then nap. Can't wait to see it feather up a bit more.

Gerhana is so precious! Such a fluffy little budgie bum. I'm glad s/he is doing so well.

Today Gerhana is doing little zoomies! Look at them go, haha- their wing feathers are coming in and they have been strengthening their wing muscles.
