    Care of new baby budgies and question about the mom

    2 babies have hatched and are 5 and 7 days old. They seem fine but momma bird has a crust developing on her beak. We removed it yesterday but it is back today. Any information would be appreciated. This is our 1st experience.

    Re: Care of new baby budgies and question about the mom

    Hi and welcome to the community. Congrats on the new babies. My thought about the beak of mom is that the mom regurgitates the seeds she eats and then feeds them to the babies. That stuff on the beak could be her fluids from feeding the babies this regurgitated seed.
