My Budgie Laid Her 1st Egg

Recommended Posts

Hi Linnux!

 

I think your baby looks like it's a greywing. :D

 

-Finnie

 

 

Why would you say greywing at this stage ? :D

 

The chick is definitely an opaline for a start......too soon to be saying greywing.

Please post pictures of the parents.

 

 

Oh, Okay. That's how my greywing babies looked, but maybe it's just a coincidence. I do still have a lot to learn. :D

 

 

Well you could be right anyway....as the Dad does look like a greywing now that we have seen this photo :D

He's pretty, isn't he?

And I can see the mom is opaline, so Dad must be split for it, huh?

Those first downy pins are always white. Too soon to say opaline as its the secondary down that goes grey or white depending on mutation no? Im fairly sure all my chicks start with the primary down as white and then the secondary down goes grey in normals etc and stays white with ino's, opalines etc.

I disagree that its too soon.....note the darker feather markings also that absolutely show the chick will be opaline IMG_4124.jpg

Hi now my baby budgies are almost 1 month old , and they are 3 in number . When is the ideal time to start training them to be hand fed or train them to talk or interact with us?

How to start off with getting them tamed?

Read this article http://forums.budgiebreeders.asn.au/faqs/i...&artlang=en

 

it tells you that baby budgies must be handled every day from the moment they hatch for varying reasons. This is a twice a day nestcheck and handling. If you havent done it up to now....why ?

Handling them constantly will make a tame bird. I see no real reason to take chicks from their nest and begin handfeeding them if you handle them daily anyway. Constant interaction makes them a tame bird.

i agree tolally with kaz

all babys i have ever tammed was once its out of the nest never before mum and dad brought them all up themselfs

however i did handle every day and one at a time so mum and dad dont get upset you just takebaby for a while keeping it warm

and as its get older you incress the time you take it

read makeing a baby for houman

i sort of explained dayly the time lengths and what age B) sorry i cant find thread for u though :)
