EI have just noticed that the first chick hatched by my budgie hen has not been yet fed by her after almost 30 hours have passed. Although both the parents appear quite caring and are constantly siting in the nest, it seems very unlikely of them as the chick’s crop is thin and empty. The colour though is still pinkish and I could hear a little chirp a few hours ago, and noticed that the chick was moving it’s limbs. The chick is being constantly moved around in the nest by the parents. Please suggest if I should wait a few more hours.
Hello. This is my first posting. Am dealing with a second clutch hatch in which the third and last little one is significantly younger than the other two. At what point (agewise) are these little ones savable? Is it best to remove it from the clutch entirely, or try to supplement and hope it becomes strong enough to demand the parents' attention?
