I hope this works I'm not really sure what to do but I followed the instructions. If you can see Pictures the first 3 are of a new chick being hatched and the 4th picture is of a hen sitting on eggs. The first hen hates shavings where the second one loves them.

Hi Brill! I'll say "Hi" and "Welcome" here, since I didn't in your other thread. :D

 

Looking forward to seeing more of your birds, now that you have the photo thing worked out.

:D Thanks for all of the nice comments. It is nice to share something with people who actually appreciate it. The pictures of the chick being hatched was taken over a period of a couple of hours and both mum and dad are very quiet birds. You are more then welcome to have her after she's finished breeding. ;) although this is her very first clutch. She laid 5 eggs and hatched out 4 the last one out she did something to it I wont mention hear:o and the last egg was fertile but she didn't care for that one. so she has 3 chicks which is a good number for a new Mother to look after.

Oh, oh, does that mean you will have to watch her with the next batch of eggs? Good luck with the little pinkies you have, hope she doesn't decide at this stage to be vicious.

So far so good she seems to be good with the 3 she has left. To be honest I have never really had a bird be horrible to all of her chicks more often then not it's the grumpy old cock :)

Brill, I looove the pictures. I can't wait until spring and I get my pairs into breeding cages. It's been a long time since I had baby budgies, but I still remember being awed every time. :)

Yes it's an absolutely beautiful thing I still get excited every time my chicks start to come out it's like Christmas you cant wait to see what's in the box the only problem with the chicks you kinda need to wait a month before you really know the colour :)

Just a quick follow up to this post the first birds had 5 baby's which I rared and there doing really well The second pair had five babys also but I left them with the perents but they let 3 die I have no idea why :( BUT the two that are left are a strange colour they are all white with the black pyed speckle through there wings and tails but no other colour's

 

As I don't confess to be an expert when it comes to budgies and there colours would anybody be able to tell me what kind of bird this may be. Oh and I forgot to add they have black eyes..

 

Thanks Brill..

pictures would help greatly,

 

but on on what you have posted and assuming the 'second' pair you mean at the ones in the last picture, I would say recessive pied.

okay I will try and post the pictures as soon as I can but I didn't want to disturb mum to much as she is being a bit nasty when i try and look in the box although the babys are almost fully feathered she is still very protective with lots of loud chirping ,wing flapping and a heap of attempts to chew any finger off she can get a hold of . And yes by the second one I mean the last picture sorry I should have been more clear about that :)

 

Thanks for the info though it was the colour that through me I can't remember having a white and black bird :)
