What advice can you give me about raising baby budgies?


Answer by  Solveig (12)

That depends what you mean by baby. If they're still pink and blind, don't attempt it- leave it to the parent birds or find someone experienced. It is very, very difficult to feed a baby bird without killing it by accident. However, if they're a little older (as in feathered and walking around on their own) they can be handled.

To clean the nest, gently remove the babies when they have some feathers, empty it and then replace them. Change mom's food and water daily. Baby udgies are easier to finger tame when you handle them as soon as they have feathers fully grown in. Separate them from the mom as soon as possible if she is nervous.

Budgies are colony breeders. The more pairs you have the more successful you will be. Make sure each pair has their own nesting box. Feed quality food

Baby budgies are not easy to raise. Baby budgies require a lot of vocal interaction. Baby budgies survive best if they are raised in pairs. They love light , sound and heat.

Feed them regularly. Allow them some space to breathe and play. Let them out for a few minutes a day. Feed them regular seeds and other bird food as normal.

It's probably best to let the parents raise their babies - if you want to hand-feed them, consult an experienced budgie-breeder. Provide the parents with adequate food and peace.
