Default Very young aggression.

Hi everyone,

I'm a bit concerned. My little albino budgie, currently 22 days old, is attacking me and his brother every time I put my hand into the nest for them to get used to me. The brother is happy and likes little head scratches, and he's 19 days old-ish.

It's also notable that in my position I cannot hand raise them. As well as that, every time I open the box and mum scurries out, she sits on the perch and screeches at me until DJ (the dad) comes over and calms her. The albino screeches along with her and gets angry at me for going near her.

Please help!

Temperament is a highly hertiable trait. A screechy nervous hen will often have a nervous screechy baby. That is why selecting quiet natured parents is important if you want quiet natured babies. It may need more time and effort to tame it, but there is usually no need to hand raise a budgie to tame it.

Thank you for your reply!

I've decided at the safety of the other younger budgie to hand raise her. People have been telling to me to so, so I've changed my schedule around to fit her needs.

She's so lovely know that she's out of the nest! She enjoys eating millet, even at 3 weeks old

She's a nice, young albino and I'm excited to tame her. She's currently on my lap chewing on my finger!

She lives in a small animal container/cage type thing with a towel over it and some shavings on the bottom.

Now, I've been told to feed her every 4-5 hours with 5-6mls. Is this correct? She's also 53g (measured today) and half English, half bush budgie.

Very exciting!
