Maesie,

 

You cannot blame a topic starter for souble posting. I know I am guilty of it at times. We simply want to update a thread, and the edit is not available for some reason, so if you want the info there, you have to double post.

 

Enna, i do understand that comment you made earlier about no one reading your post, and how you got to the double posting situation. We should all make sure that we comment on posts we read, just to assist with the "no-double posting" rule.

Fair point. I wasn't writing it to be mean, just simply stating the rules (which doen't hurt every now and again for the benefit of all)... but I do understand the update issue when no one replies to a post.

I am not sure of the timeline here, but in reading Enna marking the eggs and candling it seemed she was candling too soon and seeing "clear eggs" ? At what stage are you candling Enna ? :(

I never thought you were being mean, and I do not think Enna would think that. You're not like that Maesie. We all know that

I was candling at about 5 days old but as i'm not experience at this i missed what i should have been looking for. I however did candle them again at about 8 - 10 days old and saw what i should. A weird looking bub thing inside. As to date i clearly know two eggs are fertile. I have the numbers mixed up on the eggs. As of right now i have 2 #4 and no #2 so i'm just guessing here now but i know Egg #1 is fertile and i'm assuming Egg #2 is as well because of how developed it was in the egg. Egg three is questionable. Where the yoke is, there is a small round redish thing in there. I'm assuming this is the start of a bub. Egg 4 & 5 is to early for my unexperienced eyes to tell. By the time i can, i believe egg 1 will be hatching so i really don't think i will bother.

 

Did i mention she laid egg 5 yesterday. I believe she is going to lay egg 6 tomorrow. I personally think 5 is a lot to sit on. Hoping a ton she doesn't lay to many more.

 

Here is some pics of the proud mom with her egglets.

She really went crazy with lining her nest with feathers. When ever you open the side doors they just pop out at you.

Checking her eggs. Sitting on 5 eggs sure doesn't seem easy.

Asking peek for some food. She has kicked out a lot of the care fresh bedding. Hoping once the bubs hatch she will keep more in there so the babies droppings stick to the care fresh rather then the babies toes.

I've noticed this as well trying to fix spelling errors. Thankfully i found a spell check.

I love those new photos Enna!! they are looking good, I can't wait till they hatch. What nestbox are you using? I havne't seen the plastic ones in use much, do they have a concave in them? curious where you get them as I'd import them to the US if I could find ones that work well, I'm sure they are alot cleaner and long lasting than the wood ones.

I have never seen them for sale anywhere in Western Australia, but I would have thought that wooden ones would be better insulated, especially if you are breeding in a cold climate. Please note that I infer this without ever even held a plastic one. I thought they looked great when an ex member was using them. They would be really good for us to use in summer probably, as our temperatures get very hot.

Worst nest box you can possibly get in my opinion ( although it is easier and probably does last longer then those wooden ones). They do indeed have a concave. Because they are plastic if you don't use a good layer of bedding poo from the babies will stick to there toes. I don't think i will ever use this box again. I will either buy expensive metal one with wooden concaves/ bottoms or make one. I actually it at a pet store here.

 

They actually look like this(i'll work at getting a picture of mine to help)

Heres a site that sells them. Only site i've found that does.

12.50 for them isn't bad. I paid about $20 for mine.

I'll take your recommendation and steer clear of them then.. good to know. Right now I have a friend who's a woodworker make my newer nestboxes that I designed, so I guess I'll just stick with the wooden ones I have... I wonder if a replaceable wooden concave could be added to the bottom though to make them usefull when the temps are hot. hrm..

5 -6 days till first bub should hatch. Plans are almost set so they can have the full double flight cage to fledge in. with any luck there will be 3-4 bubs. Unsure if egg 5 is fertile yet.

Sorry to double post but bubs in a day and a bit. i can't sleep thinking about them soon hatching. I candled the eggs once more and the last egg is fertile. it was really kool because i saw something (looked like a vein really) moving. I got some pictures but they are not that good.

 

I'm very confused on one of the eggs. I thought it was Dead in shell because there is a large air sack but i looked at it tonight and the large air sack is still there but there are still veins in there and doesn't really look like the pics of seen of egg that are D.I.S or anything like that.

Here's a picture of it.

The oddest part is it looks like something is growing in there but the air sack is huge for a little egg. I have very little hopes of it hatching. I was told maybe it's because it's not humid enough but i can't see that being the problem as it's quite humid here and almost always is.

 

Here's a picture of a fertile egg in case anyone wishes to see

http://i201.photobucket.com/albums/aa143/F...lingeggs302.jpg

 

over all i'm very excited for these bubs. Today i made a list of things i want bought before they can fly. I'm getting a crawler.( here's a picture of it in case people don't know what i'm talking about http://www3.ns.sympatico.ca/susantuck/Craw...minicrawler.jpg ) I'm ordering in some stuff to make a small odd ball for each bird cage. I had one made before but my smarty pants rabbit decided since it was on the floor it was his to chew. (odd ball in case someone don't know what it is http://i201.photobucket.com/albums/aa143/F...ys/P9110973.jpg ) And i also have a small boing ordered. Spoiled birds. I'll post again once a baby hatchs to try and not triple post.

Hey guys, Guess what i heard when i woke up this morning. Yup the cute sound of a baby bub. I don't have any picutes yet but i will try to get some later. They are being such good parents. Both Peek and lilly were in the nest today. She is sitting on the bub and it's not crying so i'm assuming its fed. It's soo tiny.and pink and naket. I'd be scared to touch it. knowing me the only time i will touch a bub that small is if the next box needs cleaning and i know it will very soon with bub #1 making a mess and soon to be other bubs making a mess

Oh yes. I got brave today. Well i think it had to do with there being air in the crop yesterday. I picked the little wiggle worm up and Jello(what we are naming the bub) has a nice big fat crop and no air. i can't believe how small his little feet and wings are. To cute.

Bub 3 is here. All hatching a day earlier then planned. I don't believe egg 4 will hatch as it is probably my odd little egg.
