Omg, I hope everything goes well with the poor hachlings! I have experienced this in the past, I had a hen also who killed her baby. Did you separate her from the flock?

Unfortunately this is something we see a lot here. It is the reason why we don't recommend colony breeding, here's a thread that explains why: https://talkbudgies.com/showthread.php?t=106210.

I hope you are able to help the injured mother and remaining eggs.

Oh no, that's terrible! :eek: I hope the eggs/hatchlings and the mother will be ok. Please keep us posted if you can!

Not that you probably want to see her now(!) but here's a photo of my Jemima. (She's missing most of her top beak.)

I placed the 3 remaining eggs in an incubator. The next day one of the eggs hatched. I saw the injured mom was still using the nest (i had replaced the 3 eggs with plastic ones), so i moved the eggs and the new hatchling back in the nest. Tomorrow afternoon i will check them again but i think the mom is happy to have new babies.

The male budgie in the photos i attached in the beginning of the post with id B8 is also missing half of his upper beak. It isnt noticable because he has a lot of feathers covering it.

Yes Despina. I placed her in another cage where there are other nests to use to lay her eggs and there are no other hens in there. The hen probably entered her nest to check it out. While mom was out to eat and killed the babies within seconds and later on when mom returned they started a fight.

Unfortynally i have to have them as a colony as i have other parrots as well and can't take care of all of them so having them in a colony it is easier to take care of them.

From what I see of the bird in the middle photo, appears gaey with blueish shades. I am not a color expert. get color perfect, show the photos to a store like Kelly Moore, or any paint store, they would know all shades.

I think the female isnt' a Mauve afterall... she doesn't look blueish at all. It's getting confusing. The male maybe is grey with Violet(df), i really don't know. it's getting confusing. I will need to ask some experts to come see them from close. The light is a bit tricky towards their colours.

I agree with Allie in going off of these photos :)

Your hen appears to be a violet grey, opaline, sf spangle.

Your male a mauve, df violet, opaline, sf spangle.
