Bajri eggs and chick

Hi. I have a pair of Australian Parrot (Bajri). Female laid eggs three times in one year. Twice three in numbers and on third occasion laid four eggs. The chick usually comes out in 19th Or 20th day. But unfortunately the chick could not survive for more than two days. Please advice how to protect the chick. When did Mother bird start feeding the chick.

It's difficult to advise if you don't actually know why they died.

All I can suggest is you GOGGLE Budgerigar breeding as there is a lot of information out their & budgie specific forums & breeders that will be able to help you.

Good luck :)

The hen will begin feeding a few hours after hatching. If the hen does not begin feeding baby at that time, you will have to take baby and start handfeeding it yourself. You use handfeeding formula that is powdered. You follow directions on package and use either a spoon or a syringe to feed. If using a spoon know that baby will take in air and will not be able to hold all the food it needs. For brand new hatchlings, you have to feed using a pipette, a very tiny syringe like object, and you'll have to feed every two hours because the baby cannot hold much food at a feeding. Last feed would be late at night so baby can get through the night, and next feed would be very early in the morning. Check with your Avian Vet so they can give you a pipette or two and instruct you on how to use it. Food has to be quite warm too or baby birds cannot digest it. Your Avian Vet or a breeder will be able to help you with more information.

Make sure your parent birds are being fed a high quality food like organic pellets because all seed diets are very poor diets and babies are born weak and sometimes do not make it.

Thanks for writing and good luck,
Linda
