My birds are trained to go back to their individual cages when they've had their hour of flying exercise.

I've got 3 baby lovebirds in a nest box right now. I'd love to see pictures of your baby parakeets -- are you inclined to post them? Pleeeze?


Half English!




Yes, there are 5!



This is the daddy bird, and why they are Half English. His name is Petals a.k.a. Big Bird. This may not be the best angle of him, but he is an English. He came with 5 Englishes.. Only he, and the blue Ladybird English Budgie (named Ladybird because she seems to be a Brit, lol,) remain..



The Mom got REAL MAD at me for that group photo! One of them is squeaking for food now. Do you like them?

Pretty babies. I hope they grow up and are as beautiful as their parents.

Thanks man! I am beginning to talk to them now.

There was one "Failure To Thrive" death and of course that made me sad. But these five - even the littlest one - they "appear" that they are going to make it!!!!

Hey, you're welcome I am happy you were interested!

I can honestly say.. the birds are making me happier as a person. Ever since.. I think 2018 is when I started gathering birds and I don't think I would be the same without these beautiful little animals.

You know they are gonna look like regular birds in about a week or two! I like your Lovebirds too!

EDIT: I think, for you.. I got a pic of when the daddy was in the nest box with the Mommy and the babies, you know they do that sometimes. They look SO handsome together! Let me find it.. takes awhile but

I'm sure there are others who will be interested in your budgie babies, too, so that's why I'm moving these posts into their own thread. (I can change the title of your topic to something else, if you prefer.) I'll expect regular updates on the babies' development!

My birds have made me a happier person, too! I started with a pair in August of 2017, and they gave me three babies in May of last year. That's when I started chronicling my lovebird baby-raising adventures here on this forum. I'm on my third go-round with lovebird babies right now.

I'm looking forward to seeing how your budgie babies turn out!

They say Good Morning!

One of them (or more??) was squeaking all night. Must be a hungry guy or gal!

Making sure they have food and water before I go to work. This is the Good Mom. I didn't even bother to check out the little babies, she has three of them shielded under her.. Smart bird, that little one needs to stay warm! I think the 5 in there will be fine. (ALL her eggs hatched! She MAY have thrown one one of the box.. and one baby did die "Failure To Thrive" .. always sad. But now.. 5!! Yayy!)

Some will be white birds ?
