Budgie Eggs?

Recommended Posts

Hi There

 

Desperately seeking assistance in caring for budgie eggs. A brief background: We recently aquired a new restaurant equipped with two avaries. The budgies were removed about 4 days ago by the previous owners. Yesterday we went in to clean the cages before getting birds of our own to put in there and found 4 budgie eggs. I currently have them nestled in a container of cotton wool with a warm lamp at a consistant distance and temperature. Please any advice would be most appreciated. I am currently trying to find out from the previous owners if i could perhaps buy the mom from them, not quite sure if thats the right route to go. Please Help!

Hi,

I believe if you have only just found the eggs after 4 days of no incubation what ever is inside would have died in the shell if any thing was in there. I may be wrong but I believe eggs can only last a couple of hours with out incubation, wait to see if some more experienced members can verify this.

Thanks

Thank you so much. Just don't want to give up on the little munchkins just yet.

Looks probable that I could get the mom back, if that would help at all.

 

Thanking you kindly

very sweet of you to try with the eggs but yes after that length of time the growing chicks would have died.

 

Hope you can show us your new birds when you get them. Where you planning on getting budgies?

Hi Bird Lover

 

I will be getting my new budgies from a local bird pet shop. I will be getting them soon, just the weather hasn't been too pleasent lately and don't want to take them from small cages straight out into the elements (might be a bit drastic and somewhat traumatic for them), I would rather wait for a nice sunny day so that they can enjoy their home coming. I am terribly excited though.

 

Thanks for the support

Hi Brigitta. please dont buy a bunch of budgies from the pet store and believe all they tell you then put them in an aviary with nestboxes....

 

 

you need to know your birds are healthy, have settled in well, are of age and not encourage underaged breeding. try and find a breeder via local newspaper or gumtree rather than shop at a pet store. Make sure there are no mice accessing the current aviary.....if the aviary mesh goes to ground level, add some tin at least 2 ft up from the ground all the way around to stop mice going through the mesh, and make sure its not just sitting on soil to allow rodent access.
