|At 17 and 19 days old, good ages for hand feeding.|
|Same two youngsters. I intend to begin hand feeding|
them in two days, as the next two days are very busy
and hand feeding requires a big time commitment.
|Fuchsia's babies. Oldest is two weeks |
(14 days old). Youngest is one week old.
I haven't raised budgies for a while, but it never seemed to me that they grew any faster than Bourkes. I assume they take about the same amount of time to grow, but I've never put it to any test. If there is a difference, it's slight. Egg incubation time is the same, so growth probably would be too.
|One week old baby in my hand has pink eyes.|
Fuchsia was hand fed and is very tame.
She doesn't worry about me handling her
babies. This is her third clutch so she's very
confident and trusting.
