Congratulations to MiMi and Thunder, and to you, Cam. Be sure to post photos. You know how much we like to look at baby pictures.

It is unfortunate that MiMi and Thunder did not make good parents. Also lucky your other pair had infertile eggs so that a foster parent is available. It can be risky transferring eggs at this late stage. Hen know when eggs were laid/appeared in the nest and rotate them accordingly. If you numbered your eggs you may have noticed that older eggs were being moved to the outside or all eggs were in a circle etc. Moving them into another nest could see them becoming addled. Hopefully this isn't the case, but you will want to candle them daily to ensure all is well.

Good luck.

With mimi she did not do anything but sit on the eggs she did not feed the babies she just sat on them so the only other option was to take action to give a better chance to the little ones

As said, it is an increased risk, so hopefully it does not happen. However, the other option would have been to allow her to sit on them and transfer them to the foster hen when they first hatch. This does mean that nests need to be monitored closely when chicks are due, so that chicks can be transferred soon after hatching. This method has worked for me.

Hope all goes well Cam, be wary and listen to the advice from Li she is very well educated as far as everything budgie knowledge is concerned.
