My Last Clutch For The Season

Recommended Posts

These are some pics of my last clutch for the season before winter comes.


Leo - YF Type 2 Opaline sky blue Cock

Bella - Dilute Cobolt Blue Hen



laid 7 eggs.



First & Second Eggs Hatched on the 14th April 2014



Third Egg Hatched on the 15th April 2014



Fourth Egg Hatched on the 18th April 2014



Fifth Egg Hatched on the 20th April 2014



Baby No.5 Hatched yesterday. I checked twice yesterday and Baby had no food in its crop. Check on baby No.5 again today and still no food in its crop so i have given it some formula feeds today. about 3-4 hours inbetween formula feeding and its crop has completely emptied between hand feeds. Parents seem to still have not feed the youngest chick.

I will check it again in the morning if its still alive i will be hand rearing that chick, but leaving it in the nest between feeds so hopefuly parents might start feeding it.

Wonderful News!! Checked on the clutch thismorning and the youngest baby has a full crop and has been well feed over night by the parents! I will keep an eye on them all to make sure they are being feed well, and will step in if i need to.

6th Egg has hatched, all 6 babies are being feed well. I wonder if the 7th and final egg will hatch??

Congrats, just ensure that you keep an eye on them regularly, as 6 chicks can be an extremely heavy burden on the parents, lettalone 7.

7th egg hatched today. I checked all babies over and all are well feed and growing fast. Oldest 3 are already showing some colours in there pin feathers.

I feed the parents seed, milet spray, seed bell, fresh carot, silverbeet and cooked egg every day. They also have a mineral bell, cuttle bone & fresh water in there cage.

I have hand reared babies before, so i will step in and hand rear a few of them if i see the parents are not coping or some of the babies are not being feed well.

100% fertile rate and hatch rate for this pair. I am very happy with these budgies :)

All seems well for now :)


All eggs have hatched, 7 babies in the clutch.




This is my breeding cage
