if you touch a newborn parakeet without gloves the mom will kill it.

Hi, just wondering how much time a mama budgie should be with a newly hatched baby. I made the mistake of bringing my 2 aviary budgies inside due to bad weather. When I set them and their breeding box up in a flight cage inside I realised their is a newly hatched baby in the box. Mama bird is spending majority of her time out of the box and I can hear the baby crying out but mama doesn't seem concerned. I'm worried because I have moved them she isn't tending to the baby properly. How much time should mama spend in the box with her baby?

Linda, bring back the male, he is essential for feeding the mum during egg sitting and later on.

My parakeet is nesting. I removed the male parakeet. Will she be fine between nesting, feeding budgies and feeding herself

This is not true! I read this and was so happy, I waited for my baby to be 16 days and gently handled it. I came home from work and mama found that mama had killed him. I’m so sad!

My young budgie has laid eggs but is not sitting on them. I have moved them to a diy incubator. How often do we have to move the eggs.

Hello, Our budgie laid 9 eggs. Both mom and dad were laying on the eggs until last week. Why did they stop? How do i know if the eggs are going to hatch? Linda

The blue baby budgie in the picture looks just like my oldest baby! It is around 3 weeks old and is constantly sitting in the doorway of the nest with its head poking out, it is so cute. I wonder if it wants to leave the nest soon...

I have had my Male Parakeet and Female for 2 years. She recently hatched a chick. Everything has been going well for the past 3 weeks until yesterday. I noticed that my Female Parakeet was being very mean and aggressive toward my Male Parakeet. This morning when I uncovered them they were fine and getting along. When I got home from work, my Male Parakeet was Lying at the bottom of their cage dead. I’m still in shock as I never saw this coming! I’m heartbroken that she killed him. There is blood all over her feathers on her face. Does anyone know why this would have happened? I’m devastated! Now I’m afraid she might try nd him her baby. Please help
