Wordless Wednesday – Baby Budgies

by Deb on May 25, 2011

Baby Budgie

We’ve been through quite a few budgies in the last year, we don’t seem to have a very good survival rate. And this is the first time they’ve been interested in breeding, so we were very excited to get four eggs. Out of that we have three baby budgies (2 shown here, 1 day old)

OK they aren’t as cute as the baby chicks and guinea pigs, but it’s pretty amazing. They will stay in the nest for about 30 days, we aren’t checking very often because we don’t want to disturb them.

She’s doing pretty well for a first time Mum, hopefully it will continue.

Fingers crossed it all goes well! They’re certainly more fragile looking than baby chickens.

They are so amazingly tiny!
Admittedly they are not the cutest baby animals I’ve seen but have definitely encountered worse – I held a baby snake once and it wasn’t sweet at all; was just as creepy as a grown one. (I not a snake lover, clearly).

Wow , they are so tiny.
My Nana had budgies when she lived with us in an avairy.
I never saw them that small.

Wow, they are just precious! I had a budgie growing up that learned to talk. He had about 10 phrases. Birds are a lovely pet but are often not appreciated! Hope your little ones grow strong.
