I guess I didn't damage at least one of the eggs, because this morning when I uncovered everyone I could hear tiny sqeaks from the nest box and when I opened it up...A TINY BABY WAS IN THERE!

I'll post pics later!

Helwa...you have a lesbian bird! LOL Maybe she'll come around someday...OR you could just add to your flock! hehe

Choirmom...not necessarily. You have to have a compatible male/female pair. Check out the breeding section of the forum for some great advice on breeding birds.

I figured I'd post pics everyday, a la PrettyBird, so everyone can see them grow up, too!

Day 2

You can definitely see a noticable amount of growth in him!





None of the other eggs have hatched yet, maybe the one I broke was the next in line, though, so we'll wait and see!

YES!! I am totally glad I saved the others!

I had candled them again last night and could see this chick inside, his little eye was a black spot inside, and knew he was next to hatch!

They're so cute!

Mom and Dad are doing great job so far! Babies always have full crops!

I can't wait to see them start to get feathers and then show color. It is always so much fun and I like to share the baby bird pictures on the forum with my day care kids.

I don't really think that they're too cute, not until they get some feathers, anyway!

Plus they smell. It's a unique smell, but rather gross! LOL

Yes, It's normal. It's from being closed up in the nest box, the humididty, it makes for this musty smell...it's totally unique to baby birdies...

Mom and Dad are doing AWESOME!

Dad does a lot of the caring for the babies as well, which is normal with birds. You can actually take Mom away and Dad will do all the work!

One more egg to go!

LOL I agree, Tiger's Mom! They're so akward and goofy looking! When I take them out to clean their box and change their paper they roll around on the towel and end up on their backs with their poofy bellies and big ol' feet in the air! They're really like little aliens! All big, black eyes and feet!

Day 7

The oldest baby has his eyes open!







The last egg was bad. I noticed it had an indentation in it yesterday, thought maybe it was hatching, but this morning it had a definite rotten odor, so I threw it away! frown But 3 babies is definitely enough for Lily and Ace to handle!

lol...i was looking at the pics and started to think, "where are the hands/fingers?" Duh...it's been a long week! Sorry to hear about the 4th eggs and you are right...3 is just enough to handle. Are you feeding them by hand or letting the parents do it?

I'm letting Mom and Dad feed them for now, once they get about 2 weeks I am going to take over. I bought formula, syringes, and a brooder last time Lily laid eggs, so I might as well put them to good use!

They're ugly now, but I can't wait till they start getting feathers! I keep wondering what they'll look like!

Day 8

Pay no mind to the time stamp...I set it wrong on my new cam and I am already so confused over it that I haven't changed it! It does take nice pics, though!

All the babies have their eyes open, the smallest are tiny, little slits!









It's funny, the day before yesterday I had given the birds egg yolk, and the contents of the babies' crops was bright yellow, yesterday I gave them broccoli and parsley and today their crops are green!

Look at that huge pile of naked pink babies! That is so funny. They do look like little plucked turkeys! Congrads on your naked aliens! It will be great to see feathers come in.

Helwa...there is 3, the fourth egg was rotten!

They're really noisy now! You can hear them from their box when in the other rooms of the house, sometimes! They get super excited when Mom or Dad feeds them!

I'll post today's photos in a few!

Baby 1 will walk a bit if he can keep his gangly legs up under him and cooperating for long enough!

Baby 2 is feisty! She acks like crazy when you first pick her up!

Baby 3 is a wiggle worm! I can't get a good photo because she is constantly moving around!

ENJOY!

Day 13

Baby #3 died last night. Don't know why, but it looks like he was maybe trampled by the others. He had a full crop, but he was kind of flattened out.

RIP Lil guy!

I'll post pics of the other two later!

Yep, the other two are doing awesome! He was, too, actually, so that's another reason I assume he was smothered by the other two, throw Mom in there and if he ended up on the bottom all night, being the smallest...I think he just couldn't breathe and was trampled. He didn't have any injuries, and like I said, his crop was full, so I don't think it was a health issue!

now that's something else to worry about when there are babies in the nest. Is suffocating a possible 'normal' occurance? At what age, do you take the mom away to avoid something like that occuring? Just curious questions...

Well, tomorrow, day 14, is when I am pulling them and putting them in a brooder and hand feeding them, between 7 and 14 days is normal time to pull them for hand feeding so that way they get Mom's antibodies. If left with Mom she'll feed them for about 6-7 weeks, unless Mom lays another clutch, then she'll push babies from the nest as early as 4-5 weeks. (Lily isn't having more babies, for he record! LOL) Keets fledge at around 5-6 weeks, but won't eat fully on their own til about 7-8 weeks.

Sorry I haven't posted any updates but we have been busy, our state fair is this week and we had gone, plus we had a family reunion thing happening....so anyway, it's day 16. Baby's are in the brooder and being hand fed, which they have taken to rather nicely! They're doing great!

[b][size:11pt]Jessica Rawks, I’m sorry to inform you :o that you have two beautiful baby[/size] [size:17pt]porcupines. . .[/size] [size:11pt]not parakeets! :D LOL :D Thank you for sharing your babies with us. :) I’ve enjoyed watching their pink, spiky, little bodies grow into darling, recognizable creatures! :grin: I can imagine your life has been quite hectic since you took over the feeding. :crazy: I began spoon feeding my babies when they were about 6 or 7 weeks old. Good luck with your new “mommy” responsibilities! :blush: Really, what a neat thing you are doing for all of us, thank you! :D Your step by step “growth” photos really are amazing![/b][/size] ;)

They are too darn cute! They get super excited when they see me...I'm 'Mom' now...and start chirping and running about. They sure are happy little peepers! I can't wait for full feathering to happen! I would love them to be yellow faced blues, but we'll see!

They're super top heavy right now, so they just fall forward over their feet!

Usually I am super busy, so I don't handle them as often as I want to...I usually have them out for about an hour a day, 30mins in the morning and 30 in the evening. I'll wrap them in a towel and hold them while I watch TV or while I am doing computer stuff.

I haven't really thought of any names. One of them might be going to my friend Brandon, but he is leaving for the military in a few months so he doesn't know if he wants to take one then have to give it back when he goes to basic...I want to see more of what they look like before I start naming them!

Baby Watch Day 21

Baby #2 is definitely the more outgoing and curious of the two. He likes to walk around and check things out.

I put a dollar bill in the one photo to show their size.



















Baby #2 Preening!

The parents are Lily, which is the bird that my neighbors asked me to watch and never came back for, and Ace.

It never occured to me to postpics of the parents! LOL

Lily.


Ace.


It took me a ridiculously long time to find that pic of Ace...guess it's time for new pics! LOL

Day 24

I put the babies in the big cage so Mom and Dad could see them and so that the other guys couldcheck them out, too. Lily and Ace preened them and fed them a little, and Sunny and Nero checked them out a little. They're eating a little bit of seeds and veggies, sweet potato, broccoli, and corn, on their own!

Yea, they're most definitely birds now! At first they were baby jellybeans, then aliens, then porcupines! LOL They're already bigger than Mom, I guess you can thank Ace's English blood for that! They preen a lot now, and nibble at any foods you put in front of them. I give them lots of time with the other birds, and they are adjusting well, but Mom and Dad are super protective and won't let anyone else near them! Nero is the most inquisitive about them, which gets him beat up since he is the lowest guy in the pecking order!

OMG this is to funny your mommy bird and my daddy bird Fez look like twins and Bam Bam the mommy bird is a ice blue with light gray wings. Beaker ended up looking like Bam Bam no green in him at all. Your two little ones kind of look like Beaker.
I'm keeping Beaker away from the flock and I just can't get over how tame he is. The second you put your hand in the cage he is attached to it. I told my mom that he would probably still be on my hand even if I shook it like crazy. He does not like me paying any attention to the cockatiels in fact he chases them off of me when I'm playing with them. Beaker also has no fear of anything so I have to make darn sure no cats in the room when Beaker is out.
Aren't the babies just to much fun!!!!!!!

Pretty Bird...yea, they do look just alike! I was wondering if they are going to stay light blue with gray wings or if they may darken up like dad...we'll see! They are just so much fun! They are just so darn sweet when you raise them up from an egg!

Here are some photos from the last few days. I have been sick with a migraine so I haven't posted any, looking at the screen made me ill! LOL

I let them have a bunch of time with the other birds, and they are eating everything you give them!

They are just to darn cute! Beaker is so good about eating veggies and he ate them right away. Beaker is staying the light ice blue color but Bam Bam is that color. Its funny how none of them took after the green color. Even the baby that we lost was the light blue color like your two are.
Good luck with your two new ones they are so much fun

The color of those babies are beautiful. My last three clutches from my green pair, have been mostly bright yellow. Yellow is exciting, but that blue is so soft looking. Its amazing how these colors happen. Very exciting to see. Thanks for sharing.
