I actually had a funny feeling about it, and had intended to search for them first thing this morning.....it was when I saw Amara out of the nest and looking a bit disorientated that I felt there may be some urgency so I broke open the wall section and found them. ;) I will check them again later when Cheeta gets here and try and get a photo. I can take photos when the Mums are out feeding around 4:30ish. :P

****Happy to report*****The babies that were cold and unfed are now pink, wriggling and happily fed by foster mum Spice. So far so good. ;)

 

That's awesome news Karen, it gives you a warm fuzzy feeling inside

when you save chicks like that.

 

GOOD ON YA

 

Cheers

Well here's the photo of Spice with a nest full of unexpected babies. She has one of her own. I put four babies and a couple of eggs in there belonging to Amara so that makes 5 babies. BUT this afternoon another baby hatched so Spice now has 6 babies in there and only one is hers. She seems as pleased as punch about it all too. All babies are healthy, happy and being fed. ju06144x.jpg

Please excuse the messy nestbox as it has been raining and things got a bit mucky in there rather suddenly. Will clean tomorrow as I check all is well. ;)

 

** A new baby born today to Princess and Prince. Princess is not a very good mother and this newborn was unfed with the cold night closing in and Princess nowhere near the nest. This baby has been put in Swifts nest to raise.

I seriously thought at least two of them would die within the hour...they seemed to be breathing their last gasps when I found them. I cupped them in my hands and breathed warm air on them for awhile trying to raise their body temp, before I put them in with Spice. I am thrilled they have made it so far. :fear

All of the babies is Spice's nest (5 adopted babies of Amara's and 1 of her own) are doing well. A new baby today in the nest of Pickles and Tart. But Tart is fostering eggs. Until I check the mark on her discarded eggshell, I wont know who's has hatched. Hers or Kermits. The huge babies in the nest of Slinky and Bloo are colouring up nicely. One that has pin feathers is a definite spangle, two others look normals, other two yet to feather. Cheeta can check those for me and give you a rundown on the genetics side of things. :budgiedance: A baby in the nest of Butter (creamino) and Chucky (dom pied) seems to be all yellow so far, dark eyes. Another cinnamon baby in Izzy's nest, two others yet to determine. Ciara has seven babies, interesting colours there. I will be doing a large batch of photos through the week towards the end of the week as feathers start to show colours.

:bluebudgie: Glad everything is going well but like I said a few posts back, have lost track of whose who's who. Maybe you should start a new post afresh, we will all get straightened out and then get confused again after several hundred posts. :ausb:

okay...I'm back :wub: I will do an update for you on babies and pairs in the aviaries later tonight. Cheeta was a godsend to look after my birds as she did. I am really very grateful for that. I would not have felt easy about leaving them unless someone who knows birds was watching over them. We have new babies in the aviary as well and lost a couple to aviary disputes while I was away. Poor Cheeta for having to find the results of that. :) I visited with the mother of an old schoolfriend while I was away. She breeds SHOW budgies. Has around 300 or so. Beautiful birds every one of them. Specialises in Fallows and other rare types. Had a double factor violet Goldenfaced boy to die for !! :) He has won prizes when shown. All birds were big and healthy and absolute stunners. I may have convinced her to try out our forum. I was fortunate to be shown a few things of great help....closeringing of budgie babies, and another way to tell breeding condition besides the cere, amongst other things. A very knowledgable lady. I came home with 5 new hens, not show standard budgies but brilliant for me just the same. I will post pikkies tomorrow if I can get some good ones. More later tonight as I list some of the Mums and Dads you may want to know about. Cheers karen :wub:

Interestingly enough we have a few albinos in nests right now. Casper (YF2 cobalt normal) and Cookie have two albinos amongst their four hatched babies. Casper fathered an albino baby with Spook before (Sugar is her name), and now another two which obviously means Casper carries the ino gene. e43b2bab.jpg

SugarA1x036x.jpgOther ino babies are in the nests of Laila/Curry, Swift/ Rocket and one other as I recall.

Laila and Curry have 6 babies man083x.jpg

Spot and Precious lost 3 of their five babies through the night, seemingly from the cold. One more baby from Spice's nest died too. She now has 1 of hers and 3 of Amaras. Kaya and Sonny have their four babies plus one adopted from Kaya's sister Izzy....Babies seems to be 3 cinnamon greens, 1 sky or cobalt spangle, and a yellowface cobalt. Slinky and Bloo's babies seem to be maybe a sky normal, a grey? normal, a sky opaline spangle, a YF cobalt and ? another. Swift and Rocket have a yellow recessive pied, a lutino and unsure of others, plus one adopted baby from Princess (who is not a good mother). Ciara has two very white babies, looking eithwer rec pied spangle and dom pied ? plus others. Curry and Laila's 6 babies all have yellow feathers so far it seems....one is a red eyed albino (lutino?). Will try for better photos later in the week.

Very Cool :) Not sure if you remember but I was wondering if he had the Ino gene becuase of his cere colour.
