Budgie Adopting Is It Safe For The Budgies


Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

 

I have a pair of cocatiels nesting and they had two Babies, but they rejected them. I also have a budgie nesting she had two baby budgies but the yungest died. The oldest has fully featherd and is old enough to get out of the box.

 

well eny way the cocatiels where out in the avarie not in a breeding cage, and all the other cocatiels wanted to get the the box that the cocatiels where breeding in, and the parents where not giving the babies enough food and the babies where cold. Then all of a sudden they stoped going in the box so i caught the cocatiels and put them and the box in a breeding cage the parents still did'nt go in the box i had to get a heat pack and warm up the baby tiels. Now back to the budgies, They where avarie breeding also but one of the babies died and the other one tried to fly out of the box i found it in the corner of my avarei alive so i put the budgies in a breeding cage. They looked after their baby well. So then i had two baby tiels the needed someone to look after them, so i put them in with the baby budgie the Mum and dad budgie are looking after them but my questions are???

Is it safe for my budgies? if it isn't safe what can i do?

 

ps. the reason i did'nt put the budgies in a breeding cage after she had her first egg was because i did'nt think it would be fertile the female budgie had sat three times before and had no babies.

I'm not 100% sure... but short term, I think they may be okay but I don't know for how long. Long term, not a good idea. I remember reading something on here about someone else doing it, but not sure. LIV might have a bit more of an idea too, as she's experienced with both species.

Having troubles understanding your question exactly.

 

But if you are asking if its okay for budgies to foster baby cockatiels, the answer is NO. Cockatiel chicks, even if accepted by the budgies, will rapidly out grow the budgies and demand too much food.

You will need to hand raise the chicks yourself.

 

Visit my cockatiel forum for all the details on hand raising cockatiels :P
