    Gone

    My budgie just hatched 3 eggs the two didnt make it. It died in the nest i didnt put it out because the mother will bite me. Days after the dead babies are gone. Did the mother ate it?

    Yes, it is possible the mom or dad ate them, but that is rare in caged birds. In the wild that can happen, and there are predators that look for babies to eat! Ugh Are all the egg shells still in the box? Is there any chance the dead babies just dried up, and are so very small you did not see them in the box?

    That really is strange! Keep us posted on the eggs that are not hatched as yet.
