Omigosh! That is so cool! I have a couple of budgies named Louisa and Captain Fez and I've been tryin to breed them for YEARS!!! How come the people who DON'T want babies get all the luck? :D

I love love love budgies and I would SOOO love to raise some! They are so adorable and loyal and sweet, you know? I've always wanted baby budgies, but oh well. What can you do, right?

I read your article was like, Ahh, that's so cute! How could anyone NOT want babies! But you know that's just my opinion. And I bet all your little babies are super-happy with their mama and daddy. Are you gonna keep them or adopt them out? At least keep one, if you have grandkids. Are they cute? What am I saying, of course they are!

I hope you and your budgies do awesome!

Baby Bird update
by: Jean

Just wanted to update on the baby birds that Mickey and Minnie hatched out.As I said before this was not planned and I did what I thought was everything to discourage them from reproducing.
The babies have done well except for the last one hatched,Mom kept putting it in the corner and it died.I ended up with 4 babies as the last one hatched was the one she seemed not to want to take care of.Has been quite an experience and great learning for the grandkids.No hand feeding. All have been placed in homes and doing well.I did keep one which I think may be a male (very friendly and does not bite hard like the others).I have separated the two adults as I really do not want to do this again.They are side by side and seem happy. Have fun with your birds!

Update March 2009 Mickey and Minnie
by: Jean

Well,these guys got the best of me. They laid eggs and didn't seem to interested in them. They did this once in Dec. 2008 the first time since last spring.The eggs in Dec were not fertile and the vet said leave them alone they will lose interest after a few weeks.She laid eggs about 2 1/2 or 3 weeks ago and I just clened the cage as usual,put the eggs back on the foor of the cage (no nest box)and just figured they would not hatch.WRONG Much to my surprise I now have 4 hatchlings and one more egg.They are very busy taking care of them.I contacted a breeder near here and she will help me place them.The parents are doing all the feeding but I do take them out to clean the cage. Parents don't seem to care.Will keep you updated.

Update on Mickey and Minnie
by: Jean

So far no more egg laying. Not sure if I was just lucky or they gave up after I rearranged the cage and their toys. Guess I will have to see what happens next spring.
