Aw, I love them! I had Stanley for a few years. He was an orange or red canary with a crest. We had a relationship, he would land on my hand and peck me when I put my hand in the cage. To me that was better than no relationship. I loved him and tried to do everything right, even fresh lettuce every day. Then he died.
I'll never know why. My hubby cooked with a frying pan every morning that was non-stick but not Teflon and maybe that did him in anyway.
Their parents are feeding them yes.i am also giving the parents scrambled eggs and spinach, broccoli and green beans all cooked and mashed up , I have formula on hand ready if they dont. All I have to do right now is clean the nest box every 2 days to remove the poop. The parents are doing the rest
How awesome!!!You have baby parakeets and that is so cool!!!BTW,they will lay eggs whether they have a nest or not.I had a female parakeet that laid eggs in a cabinet that the door didn't close tight.I found 8 little eggs in there.I had a friend who raised them and she gave her birds hard boiled eggs,I don't know if that's better than scrambled eggs but you wouldn't have to cook eggs everyday.
They first looked like naked mice babies when they were born. They make a baby screeching noise when they are hungry or scared, but stay quiet otherwise. . They are starting to get some strength in the feet to hold onto my hand
