Hi all!

My budgie hatched few weeks ago and now this is what is left out of 8 eggs. She is a first time mom and 2 out of 8 eggs did not hatch, and 3 chicks died (2 chicks of 3-4 days old trampled from other bigger chicks or mom).

Mom is a SF Diluted Dominant Pied and dad is a SF Lime Green Spangle.

I put a set of pictures of the babies here for some expert eye to tell me their phenotype and gender if possible. They are about 3 weeks old now and look healthy. Also any advice when to start bonding them cuddling and holding them in hands (i dont wanna use handfeeding formula with them, looks risky if not done properly with right temp, amount and such).

Thanks in advance

Mom and dad

Hi alblegend
Welcome to the forum
Your chicks are absolutely gorgeous.
Sadly I not able to tell you the type and sex of your chicks but we have experts that will be online shortly, they will undoubtedly be able to help you there.
I totally agree that hand feeding is risky for inexperienced people, but then again if both parent birds are there then you don't need to hand feed them, at this age it should be the Dad that is feeding the chicks.
With regard to bonding with the chicks, at their age you only really have to hold them once a day for the chicks to get used to you handling them, once they are independant then you can start the bonding process, in the meantime take your time reading this section Training and Bonding - Talk Budgies Forums it really is great.

Hi and to Talk Budgies!

Your budgies are precious. I can't see their ceres well enough in the pictures to give you advice with regard to their genders. If you post full-frontal close-up pictures taken in natural light of each of the three babies ceres, we will be better able to determine the genders.

To familiarize yourself with the forums, please take the time to read through all of the How To Guides, the FAQs and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.
You'll find most of your basic questions are answered after you've read through all of them.

Welcome to the forums and congratulations on your chicks!

Once they are fully feathered it will be easier to more accurately tell their colour mutations (I can see at this stage that two of them are likely to be recessive pieds) and the same goes to their genders. The ceres will still go through some changes as they continue to grow.
About the handling, you can start socializing them already by this age by cupping them on your hands for just a few minutes and then return them back to the nest box with momma bird. As they continue to grow and reach weaning age (3 and a half - 4 weeks old) you can start to take them out for longer periods of time 15 - 20 minutes max to play/cuddle with them and also take this time to offer them all kinds of food for them to try on.

Hello and to the forums

Your chicks are precious, congratulations! I agree with Aluz concerning mutation and gender--once they're fully feathered, both will be much more apparent.

It's great to have you with us and we hope to see lots more of your little budgie family as they grow

If you ever have any other questions, please do ask as we'd be happy to help
Hope to see you around!

Hi thanks for warm welcomes and sorry for not getting back at you guys, been busy.

Baby chicks getting more curious now one got out of nest and i been taking them out few minutes a day. idk what to offer them now as treats from my hands spray millets or seeds but ill try. I been keeping parakeets for a while now and im not new to them, i just was unprepared for a clutch and breeding. I didnt notice smthe female was behaving weird hiding in dark places until we discovered the first egg inside the food dish lol. And there it started lol.

Anyways, i read above someone said recessive?! ? made me think how can be both recessive when mom is a dominant pied and single factor will give a semi dominant pied :/ one of them is a blue spangle and i assume is a male (very active, curious and friendly not biring or such, i guess thats the one im going to tame). The 2 little yellows idk yet but i have to wait til fully feathered like u guys said. Here some more pics bc i know we all like budgie pics especially chicks lol tmrrw ill post some more pics of other babies as i didnt take them out of the nest today just this little guy lol

The little guy looks more like a girl at this stage, but time will surely confirm it or deny it.

I was unable to open the attached pic of the budgie parents and from it none of them looked like visual pieds. If the mother is in fact a dominant pied, then that would make the yellow based chicks dominant pieds as well.

Regarding foods for weaning chicks, you can offer spray millet and other easier to dehusk seeds, like canary seed, flax seed and Niger seed. Egg food is also a very important and highly nutritious supplement to give to growing chicks and it's also very easy for them to eat. You can also offer them some veggies, spinach leaves are soft and chicks usually go for them. You can put some by the nest box's entrance. Once they try out the spinach, you can then give other leafy greens for them to nibble on.

You will find all the detailed information by checking the stickies at the Budgie Breeding section of Talk Budgies.
