Deadbeat Dads

Recommended Posts

Just been wondering, if in the budgie world, there are deadbeat Dads who don't feed their mate or chicks? And if that can happen, can the hen raise her babies as a single mum?

 

Possbly a silly couple of questions but I am interested to know!

 

I think I am spending too much time gazing at the aviary! :D

you can never spend too much time gazing into an aviary :D

 

Yes there are budgie dad out there that don't do the best of jobs in feeding and such, but if need be the hen can care for a clutch alone. You can also get dad that continue with raising a clutch if a mother dies or is lost.

 

It's best if the hen is doing more work than normal to keep her at one round not two.

By this you mean, just let the hen have on clutch, no more, I guess.

 

My lady does not have this problem she has two males fussing over her most of the time!

I think I will end up with an overweight hen and babes!

Cool, I'm new to all of this bugie love stuff. I thought I was the only one who sits and gazes adoringly at my birds. Thanks for letting me know that it is a shared neurosis! :feedbirds:

(Laughing out loud)! I have had my aviary for about 4 months now (had budgies for years though) and I can sit on my back verandah, with a coffee and just gaze!

 

My kids are beginning to think I have lost the plot but the budgies are such busy little souls and funny characters that I find great relaxation and entertainment in watching them. :(Laughing out loud):

 

Gee and I too, thought I was all alone!!!
