Baby Budgie Not Fed Yet....

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Well yesterday one my eggs hatched and all was fine.

Today i checked in and it looks like the chick hasn't been fed still. It has gone a lot quieter and seems to be forgotten by the hen. There are 10 other eggs in the nest and i am worried this chick is being ignored. Should i get it out and try and hand feed it some formula? Its been over 24 hours now.

Regards,

Jaff

 

UPDATE- Baby just died in my hands while trying to feed it :(

Chick looks okay. Is this a first time Mum? Maybe the chick didn't call for food etc so Mum ignored it, if she's a new Mum sometimes they don't know what to do at first. See how she goes when next one is hatched. Is she the only pair you have down with eggs/chicks? You can foster chicks if you have another nest with chicks the same age.
