    WOW! They are so DELIGHTFUL! Will you be keeping them? Or selling them/giving them away?
    It's amazing that they grow up so quickly!

    Re: Oh no...Here we go again...The sequel!!!

    Ok...we now have 4 babies. The fourth and last was hatched with an assist from Jenn at about 11:30am Monday morning. Jenn had to assist a bit as after draw down, the baby was way over due to hatch...there was also a concern about Baby not taking care of this one as well as the others. The others are so much bigger than #4...especially #1...he/she is a porker of gargantuan proportions...kind of a survival of the fittest type of thing...however Babybird eased our fears and has been feeding him/her, so things to this point are looking to be alright. Now the watching and waiting to see what they all will look like in a few weeks when they get all their feathers. Will they look like Baby and Dory's last clutch, or will we get some surprises like we did with Baby and Little Timothy's clutch...time will tell.
    Bubbles...no, we won't be keeping them. We have 20 budgies right now, including the 2 that will be moving on to their new home in September. If we had more space, more cages, more time and more money...we would have an insanely large number of budgies because we love them so much...however at this point we are pretty much at the limit.

    You have SO many babies! Good luck with the new little guy. I've always had issues with the last egg being taken care of.

    Thanks Allison...it would now appear that the concern we had for the fourth baby may have been a little bit premature. Baby is feeding him/her and right along with his/her siblings...porky is the order of the day. Baby seems to just relish being a mother and feeding 'cause these guys almost look like they are ready to explode. I guess this is a good thing because they are growing like weeds...although #1 looks to be about 4 times the size of #4. All we need now is some feathers so we can see what colours we'll get this time.

    Re: Oh no...Here we go again...The sequel!!!

    congrats are in order I see
    can I ask you something?
    I want babies but do not get any
    well I haven't tryed like putting in a nest box or anything either because hubbie does not want babies
    BUT

    if the birds were to go it on there own than he could not say no it is a part of life & you can't fix a bird

    so do you keep you males & females away from one another or are they all together all of the time like mine?
    just trying to figure a way for nature to take it course on it's own

    Re: Oh no...Here we go again...The sequel!!!

    just thought of something else

    I have a friend of mine who found a bird out side one day on her bird feeder
    she caught her & brought her in
    she kept her away from the other for 3 months not knowing what she might of caught whal outside

    when it was deemed safe she let this bird meet her other flock
    these birds have a huge room to fly free in

    there is also a closet in here in which the wild bird found a way into by chewing a hole
    she was trying to get out again


    well when she finally figured out that she could not get back to freedom she decided to take on another challenge

    she started laying eggs

    well my friend saw that she was not going to stop so she put her in with a male to get fertile eggs
    her first clutch she had 6 eggs in which all turned out fine & they all got good homes

    her second clutch she got 9 a whopping 9 eggs all hatch & all went to good homes

    now she is at it again so my friend took 4 of the 6 eggs & boiled them & gave them back
    so she will only have 2 babies to take care of
    we all know that baby budgies are a LOT of work

    well just wanted to share my story

    Kathy...our birds are only separated at night. The hens go in one cage to sleep and all the males go into another. We started doing this because there was just too much fighting and squabbling over who would get the best perches at night and it just got way to out of hand. Now the hens will still squawk a bit at night, however we put swings in their sleeping cage that are all hung at the same level so nobody gets the "highest" perch because there isn't one...they're all the same. In the males cage this just doesn't seem to be a problem...they pick a spot to sleep and don't really seem to care who gets the "highest" or "best" perch. It only seems to be a female issue.
    As far as the nest box goes...that didn't get put in until it was obvious that Babybird was going to be laying another clutch. We had actually done everything we could to get her out of her hormonal breeding state but it was of no avail. We even went so far as to put Baby in another room, but she got really depressed and went on a hunger strike for 2 days so we had to put her back with the flock.
    Given enough time you may end up with babies after all...or you might not...it just depends on your birds whether they decide to breed.

    Omg! I love the lil nekkid pink pile! I'm so glad number four is doing well! Phew! What a close call! Awesome that Jenn was on hand to do an assist hatch. I would have been sweating bullets. Now.. for some feathers!

    Baby is holding up very well Carol...as you can see in the pics, she feeds these little munchkins almost to bursting. You're right about the size difference between #1 and #4...it's huge. However #4 is doing his/her level best to catch up and given a couple more weeks, the difference probably won't be there at all. As soon as we have more pics on Photo Bucket, I'll post them...

    Re: Oh no...Here we go again...The sequel!!!

    Hey Carol...it's hard to tell how much extra she eats. We probably see Dory feeding her 3 or 4 times a day at least, but those are only the times we might notice. Dory is constantly eating so he could be feeding her a lot more than that. We also see her at food bowls more often with this clutch (4 hungry babies takes a lot of food) because sometimes Dory will take a break and hang out with the boys or take a nap or find something to play with. So...all in all, they eat a lot...babies included, and the babies are mega poop machines...it's unbelievable the amount that comes out of them
