Hello! I am new to this forum so before anything else, I want to thank all of you because I got big helpful tips here as I am a beginner when it comes to budgies and birds in general. 馃槃馃槃馃槃

We have these two 3-week-old budgies at home named Tori & Bacon. I noticed just now (it鈥檚 currently 11:20PM in the Philippines) that Bacon sleeps on his tummy in the corner of his box. He weighs 31 grams. Bacon was energetic this whole day and he likes to call/chirp/try so hard to fly out of his box to play every time he sees anyone looking at him.

Also, what does rapid breathing looks like for a 3-week-old baby budgie? What could be the possible reasons for this rapid breathing? I noticed that Bacon鈥檚 breathing while sleeping is considerably faster than that of Tori鈥檚 but this is the first time it happened and I鈥檓 thinking that maybe it鈥檚 because he was laying on his belly. Tori is sleeping upright.

Thank you so much for reading up to this point! Hoping for answers from the baby budgies experts :cry: Unfortunately, there are no avian vets near us. The lockdown in our area made it even more difficult to find one in the city, which is 5 hours away from where we are.

Sorry for the delay in the reply. Your thread was lost in the "Budgie Articles" section of the forum. I've now moved it to the appropriate place.

Are these babies from a breeding pair you own?
Bacon may simply have a higher respiratory rate than that of Tori. The fact he is energetic during the day is a very good sign.
How are the babies doing now that a few days have passed?
Are these babies from a pair of budgies you bred? They are adorable!!
