We brought the budgies inside for the first time today for just a few moments after I'd cleaned out the nest box.

Alright everyone, the moment has come. They chickies are feathering up quickly and I'm asking for your feedback about mutations and colours and sexes.

 

 

A1: (female, green spangle??? I dunno! haha! Do they get split for pied???)

All done. :)

 

Sadly, the eldest chick died unexpectedly almost a week ago. The youngest chick has been released into the aviary and seems to be doing great! :D

Anzac I think the sister called him. :)

Sorry to hear about the loss of your chick. Glad the other one is doing well - A2? I notice that you never got a reply on mutation/sex of the chicks. I would say A1 - male spangle and A2- female pied (but harder to see). Hopefully someone else will be able to confirm or correct my non-expert opinion.

How are the birds coming along now mysixbabies?

 

 

Hi JimmyBanks and everyone else, all my birds are doing well. Sadly, the elder of the two 'A' chicks died some time ago. The mother bird (Aussie) dissapeared one day and we never found a trace of her. No idea how she could have gotten out of the cage (pretty much impossibly) and no sign of feathers or anything inside the cage so that remains a mystery that we will probably never solve. Chick A2 is doing well, holding her own among our seven other birds that we have at the moment.

This morning actually, I put a new pair down to breed in a makeshift breeding cage. They are the only paired birds I have at the moment and I'm more then happy with their choice of partners. I can't wait to keep you updated on them and I hope that they will breed some beautiful chicks for me. :)

okay, so I decided that I should put two pairs down to breed.

 

Fella (F) and Cheeky (M):

Pair 1, Fella and Cheeky are getting close to starting their family. Cheeky has mated Fella - numerous times - and she has been spending ALLOT of time in the nest box. The oats are all chewed up and kicked out and she looks very cute when she peeks out at you! Looking forward to babies!https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-bkY7LEy24Rs/VDneWpNZ1uI/AAAAAAAACKA/6mK7wzU14Zs/w603-h400-no/DSC_9272.jpghttps://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-HDjSQ5YlZhc/VDneExKvpSI/AAAAAAAACJ4/_TNUmK_1Szg/w603-h400-no/DSC_9294.jpgSorry about the links...my internet is playing up and the adding a picture option isn't working for me.

The oats are all chewed up and kicked out and she looks very cute when she peeks out at you! Also seen him feeding her once or twice. Still waiting but looking forward to babies!

 

Pair 2, Echo and Able aren't quite as 'advanced' as the others but Echo has been spending more time in the next box and chew chew chewing so I'm hoping they won't be too far behind the others. JUST WANT TO SEE EGGS!!!!!!

One egg laid in the top box yesterday I believe. Fella's. Not sure if it will make it though because somehow it got tiny dent-cracks in it. Felt fertile though so I'll just leave it there and see what happens.

Hopefully it works out.

Two weeks since the first egg was laid. Five. Still haven't determined if any of them are going to hatch - I can't find a decent light to candle with. Eggs keep rolling forward in the nest box. I am going to have to fix the base. I have a removable base with a slight indent in it but it's obviously not doing the trick. So, not knowing which or how many of the eggs have rolled forwards, I'm not sure how many are going to hatch. Fella is a first time Mum so I'm not expecting great things of her at this stage. Fingers crossed though.

There is a chick! Looks like it was hatched today, probably just minutes or hours ago. I am very pleasantly surprised. Will post pics when I get the chance. :)
