New Baby Died

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I finally have baby budgies!! Yay!!!

 

The first one hatched on the 13th April, then 14th April, 17th April and 19th April. There is 1 more egg to go.

 

My question is about #4. When I checked it this morning it was fine, very little compared to the others but alive and squawking with food in its crop.

 

When I looked in this evening it was dead, looked a bit squished. Would the bigger babies have squished it? If so is there something I can do to stop that from happening. I still have 1 egg to go and don't want the same thing to happen.

 

Thanks for any advice,

 

Tracey

Sorry about your baby :(

 

Unfortunately these things happen. It could have aspirated and got some food in its lungs.

 

Good luck with the rest :)

it may not have been fed by parents....all dead babies look squished by the time you find them but rarely do they die from being squashed...its just a natural assumption we make when we find a flattened dead baby

How are your chicks doing now? Sometimes new parents will decide how many chicks they are willing to raise, and then not feed or properly care for any more that come after that. Hopefully your last one hatched and is thriving.
