So Ike and Clover had 3 babies. They are now 12 days old. I will be hand taming the babies and keeping them. Once they are out of the nest I'm removing the nest so they don't lay any more eggs.

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.

I gave them hardboiled too but warmed them up as they feed them to the babies. Yeah I gotta remove all things that they could nest out of the cage.

The bedding is small animal bedding, momma isn't throwing it out of the nest box so she must like it.

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
