Oh Dear! Aren't we excited.

I'd love to be able to see your face when they hatch. It is a wonderful moment, when you see that small pink wormy thing that will turn into a beautiful budgie.

Good luck

Cindy

YAY GUYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HAHAHHHAH YES IM SOOO EXCITED!!!!!!

 

Who wouldnt be excited when you wakeup to a lil chirpy noise thinking it was your alarm clock..the n having to still go back to bed eventhough your wide awake wanting to see the wee lil one :P I got up (after nosebleed at 6:30 :lol: ) and peered in the box...AND A LL BABY IS FLAPPING HIS WINGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Just like i remember when i bred before! Tini wings, MINISCULE head, black eyes, and his down feathers are already dried! Hes got A LOT of them to! :lol: No food yet, but i bet he only hatched 1-2 hours ago... as at 10:10pm lastnight you could barely make out his tini crack on the shell! Im off to school in about 1 hour and 10 minutes...i hope i see her feeding them (as in i hope theres food in his crop) by the time i leave so im not worried shes not feeding him all day :P Kirbys been at the food dish all morning and he usually isnt so....

 

Will keep you all posted! :lol: WHIPEEE IM A GRAND DADDY AGAIN!!! :)

HAHAAHHA you guys know me to well! Guess what! Im 'sick' today :P I went to school then called home cuz i do feel a bit sick, but its managable... excuses excuses eh? :)(Laughing out loud)

 

Im scared....

I came home and looked in the box, and the baby doesnt look fed. :( I setup Ariel with a better nest box (same as BElles) in case i have to foster the baby out to them..as i might have to do. I know im not suppose to touch the baby for a couple days but i feel this is an emergancy. The baby chirps, but isnt as lively as i remember the others being. He flaps his lil wings, and crawls...i duno, maybe its just me? :P Kirby went in the box with Belle, and i saw him feeding something while the baby chirped...then i peered in and he was feeding Belle and preening her :( Not baby...Here are pics...does he look fed a bit or no? I thought so, but then i dont sometimes...

congrats Kirby the baby doesn't look feed as the crop is not expanded.

I would suggest you do a search through the breeding section because all the Australians are sleeping at this moment AHHHHH and I can't help you because I haven't been through the experience BUT I remember reading ALOT of different posts.

 

You may want to PM Rainbow she is in the US and has breeding experience with her birds.

 

I have to hop out of the house for a moment but please read through those posts. Just make sure she is keeping the baby warm right now too she may start to feed it as he is feeding her she will turn around and feed the baby.

Thanks Lovey...

 

But ive got some bad new :P

Since the baby wasnt being fed, i put him in the concave with Ariel. All was good until i heart a racket in her box :( I IMEDIATELY opened up the box and baby wasnt in the concave anymore :( But flung on the back wall. I shooed Ariel out of the box, and i got baby. His wing is broken (bent and not stretched out like h is other wing is) and bleeding, then hes got s tear in his wee stomach :) With the help of Cheeta she suggested putting flour on the cuts, so i did. The bleeding stopped...but baby isnt moving thatmuch :) Belles accepting him again, but still not feeding. His bleeding stopped everywhere (wing and chest) but whenever he breathes air escaes the tear on his stomach and a clickign sound is created!!! I feel SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO BADLY!!! OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG I KILLED HIM :( Oh no guys, im sorry to announce but i dougbt *** live anouther hour. I want him to be with his family his last few minutes,being kept warm, and feeling loved..

 

* :P baby, may you continue to chirp in heaven*

I'm so so so sorry Nathan that this happened to your little precious one.

Things happen, but unfortunately this time it just didn't work out the best that we had hoped. :P You didn't know that this would happen, and certainly Ariel showed all signs of wanting to be a mother. I guess we just didn't know that Ariel would be so agressive to a new born baby.

I'm so sorry hun, hopefully Belle will know her duties with the other chicks that are ready to be hatched.

Thanks dear...

 

But im glad becuse if it wasnt for you, and giving me the flour idea to stop the bleeding...who knows what would have happened :P

 

UPDATE:

Baby is warm, chipring, and stopped bleeding!!! :):(:D Not being fed yet ( :P ) but better thanb leeding to death. His wing is still messed up :( but his clicking sound stopped...and no more bleeding anywhere!!! :D Kirby was in the nest preening him an dBelle...so hopefully they will learn to feed them to soon ehough...IM PRAYING! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

 

Ps- If he does leave us, i want him to have a name... but a good one if he does live though ... I like

Magi- Hungry

Nooree- Noisy one

Mani- Jewel

 

Which would you guys think suits him? I hink hungry does as no one is feeding him :( but then again hes very noisey..or was, or since hes a tini little jewel...What do you think?

Thanks!

 

Sadly...his lil wing is swollen, purple, and scabby :P I dont think hes going to make it. And now im VERY worried if they arent feeding him, what they will do with the other 7 babies.

 

Im wodnering though...what if i give Ariel an egg before it hatches? That way she can watch him watch, and wont be worried when i dump a baby in it? I think as soon as i see it starting to hatch, ill put it in her nest then sehe can see it growing, and help it out so shes not startled. What do you guys think? Im scared htough, whos knows whats going to happen to the 7 other babies, not to mention our new lil baby whos not that well :P

Kirby I'm so sorry to read all this :P okay I'm not sure but You don't have hand rearing mix yet, so lets improvise (just for now) I've read of some using weekbix mix but I think that was for older birds.

 

Some warm water and a dash of milk (very little mmount) Sorry I don't know the ratio , Now you need something to use to get it to the baby, if you don't have a tiny spoon that can be bent to form a spout use a straw to drip the mixture into the mouth or even a cotton tip - once the ends are removed the tube is hollow (at lest they are here) This mixture will give some strengh to him to hopfully cry louder and Belle will start to feed them. Ohh actually I think Daz just used his finger to drop in the mixture.

Hey Buddy....what a horrible thing to happen to you and you so far away from us. :wub: Hoping for the best, and if not this little one maybe parents will get the idea for the next babies that hatch. You can try suger water to start with apparently. Anything to give baby energy and vitality to make noise to be fed. Big hugs :angel1:

Hey guys...

 

So i went out and got good hand feedin mix... made it up accordingly...got baby from the nest and started eating the mix. My mom and i were THRILLED!!!!! Until he start choking it seemed...i was 'forcing' to much on him :wub: He then cleared his throat and kept eating well! Until...his heart stopped :wub::( :( Ive made a little kleenex coffin for him, and made a cross on the lil package with wings on it :( I feel SOO BADLY!!! I killed him, and he never did anything wrong :( Belle is looking ocnfused why the lil pink thing that chirped under her is gone, but Kirby has figured it out and is calling to him :(

 

Egg 2 should be here tomrrow i think, no wait friday...Ariel started laying on her eggs again, so when see the 2nd egg starting to hatch should i move it in with Ariel? She got surprised last time, but do you think shell accept the baby if it hatches with her watching it? PLEASE TELL ME YOUR THOUGHTS!!!!! Or should i keep it with Belle..then just hand feed it sooner instead of waiting 12 hours before his 1st meal? Belle sat on him VERY well...never leaving him for more than 5 minutes... I think i might keep her with him, but just help start him off by handfeeding him until Belle gets the idea.

 

Me rambling on:

I FEEL SOOOOOOO BAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I KILLED A PERFECT BABY!!! :( Why me, why Belle, WHY THIS BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I feel like i gave up on him, no not gave up, i feel like i put him in a death or death situation! What was i thinking putting in with a hormonal female? WHAT WAS I THINKING!!!! WHAT WAS I THINKING TO PUT TO MUCH FOOD IN THE SHRINGE!!!!! WHY DIDNT I BUY HANDFEEDING FORMULA SOONER!!! He could have still been alive right now if i stayed in school becuase i wouldnt have added him to Ariels nest, and i would have gotten the food faster as my mom didnt want me out becuase i was 'sick :( ! ! ! ! I let him down, Belle down, Kirby down, my mom down whos now crying becuase she was also the one to see our last dog have its last heart beat like this baby, and i let myself down for being so foolish!!! This sucks so bad!
