    We have an egg!

    My pair, Budge and Parrot have been playing the dating game for quite a while now, so I decided to let nature take it's course and put in a breeding box for them. Two weeks after I put it in, she's laid an egg Yesterday I noticed a rather obvious egg bump near her vent, and a few hours later when I checked the box she had laid it!

    I'm quietly confident, while they are both around the 2 years old mark, it is their first clutch so hopefully some chicks survive. I will be keeping them as I have plenty of space for them

    Here are the proud parents to be:





    Just thought I would share

    Just a quick picture of Budge sitting on her 5 eggs. Soon to be 6 judging from the egg bump she has! Bit strange as she stopped laying on the 19th, but what can you do!

    Re: We have an egg!

    The first egg hatched today!

    I've fallen in love, he is the most adorable thing, and his little chirps are beautiful!

    Doing well so far, is quite vocal, and mum is feeding him well, his little crop is full. Such clever budgies!

    Here are a few pictures, sorry they aren't that great, but I didn't want to get to close just yet!

    Re: We have an egg!

    Egg number 2 is also drawing down so baby 2 should be on his way tomorrow or the next day

    I got to see Budge feeding him this afternoon, I just can't believe the gentleness they have.
