jonclifton posted a topic in New to BBCGedday, I am new to breeding budgies. i have had a good run this spring, have had over 40 babies. Today the Mum of one of my pairs escaped. Her and her partner have already had 5 this spring and now have another five. I was wondering if I should leave them for Dad to raise. The youngest is 24 days old. Will Dad feed them? I have 4 other pairs that are feeding young. Can I put them with them to raise. Any help would be much apprecaited. i love my budgies and get great enjoyment out of them. It was my faulty the mum got away. i am vision impaired so I have to be careful what I am doing and usually have help. Today I was on my own and did not see the mother and she escaped. Long sotry. Please help. Regards, Jon.
