HEHEHE!!! :):D:wub:

 

Yay! My crazyness is catching onto you guys!!! :wub:

 

I candled 1st egg again, was almost ALL red with viens and a little blob inside (baby growing), egg 2 was orange full of viens, and the little baby was also visible (pink dot size or pencil eraser)... Egg 3 s still not good enough to see clesrly yet, so i will do it tonight then as it will be day 4 i think... or i may just wait till day 5 to stop touching the egg(s)... Ive already put out ads on websites for babies...i know they have not even hatched yet, but i want to allow the future owners to be able to come over throughout the experience (at aged about 2 weeks, 3 weeks, 4 weeks, 5 weeks, then 6 weeks when they can take them home) to bond with their baby before they take him home...

Oh congrats on another fertile egg!!! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! (Laughing out loud) I love seeing baby budgies...Although...I've only ever seen them in pics :) But that could soon change at the rate Skye and Fran are going! :D:D:D

Hey I'm in Canada too...I paid $20.00 for mine :ausb: But it was a new pet store that just opened a month earlier so they're probably cheaper now...Where in Canada are you?

Yep! I'm over on Vancouver Island BC :) I only got one at the time because I only had $30.00 with me..(Laughing out loud)..I'll be going to get another one fairly soon I hope...I got mine at Petland...I got a betta at a super pet once...In edmonton...It was my first crowntail betta...(Laughing out loud)...I used to breed them so I wanted "good quality" bettas...(Laughing out loud)

HAHAHA far away then :ausb: (Laughing out loud). I wanted to breed Bettas to but i never did as i got impatient and got cichlids instead.. (Laughing out loud)

 

Im off to go see if Belle had 5th egg... i have a feeling she did as her past times she would have laid it by now (its 2:53pm here)...

Well I hope she did lay another one! :)

Breeding bettas wasn't quite interesting and I did it for about a year then I stopped...It was just too much work having to GROW food for the baby fish and clean their tanks and stuff...budgies are much easier to take care of :rip: Plus you can hold budgies and cuddle with them unlike fish :P

 

How long after your hen made big poops did she start laying her eggs? Because Skye is making these really big poops that I would never have thought could come from her..rofl

Whipeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

5th egg is here!!!!!!!!! :rip: Well... her poops get bigger a few days before. I started noticing a bigger difference about a week before the 1st egg... then a few days before youll notice her tail bobbing or twitching a bit, then in about 3 days BAMB AN EGG!!!! Thats what has happened to me for all my hens who have had eggs...

It's not getting the ferilte eggs to worry about with new mums it them looking after the babies correctly when they hatch.

 

I'm glad for you Kirby I check egg three tommorrow.

Thanks for the help! I decided to switch out Fran for Aries because Skye was being mean to Fran and they were fighting a lot...Skye and Aries aren't fighting at all so far...

When I happened to look at Skye's vent area, her feathers looked wet :ausb: Why do you think that is? There's like no possible way she can fit in the water dish either...(Laughing out loud)...Unless she REALLY stuffed herself in but i doubt it.

in case she lays more it might be an idea to give them the same number or something.

Thanks guys!

 

The 4th is fertile :lol::):D Yay im soo excited!!!

 

Im now wondering what i should do. Ariel (other hen) has 5 eggs, all infertile, and have been laid for about 30 days. Shes VERY messy (plumage messed up everywhere, and her hubby Chico is started moutling) both both Chico and Ariel are good to the eggs still (Still sitting on them, Chico feeding Ariel well) so i dont know if since Belles a 1st time mum, to have 6 if not more babies will strees her, if i should put some eggs under Ariel.... I was thinking put the 3 oldest eggs under Ariel so they hatch soonest, then since theres 3 then they will have company in the nest... then Belle will stll have ta least 3 babies, but more if she keeps laying. What do you guys think? Thanks!

when is the first set to hatch for you Kirby?? I would wait until the day before to move the egg, that way if Ariel doesn't get a chance to give up on eggs and chuck them all out including the foster ones.
