I urge you to help me with four baby budgies (older is 11 days old an so on with two days difference).

Their mother was killed by another parakeet and the babies are left with their father... he periodically feeds them but I want to do all possible to raise the babies!!!!

I will highly appreciate anyone's help!!!!!!

You will probably need to hand feed them.

you need to go to a aviary store or contact an aviary vet to show youhow to hand feed the chicks. They have to be fed every 2 hrs. If you have another adult female you could see if she would foster them. I do not know how well the father will take care of them if at all. They still need to be sat on to keep them warm. So you will need something to keep the nestbox warm.

Why was your bird killed? Why didn't you seperate the parakeets if you saw any violence between them! If you have any other parakeets in the cage you have the one that killed your mother one in I would suggest switching cages!!....So sad....

Snow glistens upon the open field, I see your shape, I hear your chirp, and happiness fills my soul, knowing how happy you must be, to be away from me....RIP Frosty! I'll love you forever and for always!

I'm relieved to hear it's worked out well.

What have you been feeding them?

Not yet, I got prepared to do so, received hand feeding lessons from a breeder, but it was not necessary... parakeets's father keeps feeding the babies since mother's died... in addition, It is great to see that older brother also feeds younger brothers... every day I say... this is going to be the one... but father keeps doing his job... hope they get soon out of the nest(older was born on Dec 22).
