There's An Egg!

Recommended Posts

Guest Alora

Skye just laid an egg about an hour ago! :) one minute i looked in...did some chores, came back and there it was! She was sitting there looking at it like, what the heck was that?! (Laughing out loud)...It is sooooooo cute..it's a perfect little thing :wub::P:( Even my brother is really excited now..(Laughing out loud).

Here's a few pics...

The first one i took this morning when I thought her vent looked swollen but I wasn't sure....I was just taking pics of them and she just so happened to turn her bum towards the camera...(Laughing out loud)

Thanks! ohhh I can't wait till I can find out if they're fertile or not...how many days after being laid can you check to see if they're fertile? isn't it like a week or so?

It's cute...Skye hasn't left the nestbox and she's sitting on it...I thought they didn't do that till the 2nd or third egg? :budgiedance: myeh...doesn't bother me as long as she's a good mum :wub:

Congratulations!! It is such an exciting time!

And aren't the budgie eggs just the most adorable little things, I was amazed they were so tiny when I got my first ones a month or so ago.

oh gosh yes they're so small!!! It's amazing a little bird can come out of that!! :blink: I remember when I watched our finches eggs hatch it was the most amazing thing! unfortunately they started hatching when we were about to go out somewhere and I was too young to stay home and watch them...I was SOOOOOOOO mad...I got to watch two hatch then we left...I remember that was the clutch that Jenny (the mom) laid 14 eggs! :blink: The dad, Beep, was just going totally crazy...excited that he was a daddy...too cute..They were little zebra finches...it's funny when you start beeping to them they really get a-goin'...(Laughing out loud)

only 9 hatched but It was still crazy...Fortunately we didn't have to let the eggs go to waste...I had been keeping a garter snake as a pet for a while and fed the unfertile eggs to it...It enjoyed them... (Laughing out loud)

I really hope they hatch too! I candled one the first egg today and I saw little red lines...Unless I'm wrong, #1 egg is fertile! :hap: check the other one on sunday or so....Skye laid a third egg today...I had JUST missed her laying it because when i checked it was still wet :hap: and she was panting and airing herself out by lifting her wings...i just LOVE when they lift their wings like that...it's so adorable :hap:

UPDATE! Skye laid a fourth egg and it doesn't look like there's any more comings so she's sitting at four eggs...1,2 and 3 are all fertile and I have yet to check #4 to see if it's fertile...I got to see #1 moving around inside the egg...ONE WEEK TO GO!!!!! until #1 hatches..so excited! Since theres only four it shouldn't be a problem for the parents...that's one easy clutch..(Laughing out loud)

I am just so totally excited! (Laughing out loud) The first egg should hatch on thursday...I just candled it again and I cant see anything in it...it's darker than it was before...Is that the chick inside getting so big it's blocking the light from the flashlight?
