HAND FEEDING LINEOLATED PARAKEETS
The pair of turquoise Lineolated Parakeets we purchased early last summer decided to lay a clutch in late fall. Two of her three eggs hatched Dec. 10 and Dec. 11, 2013. For whatever reason, the parents seemed to ignore them, pushing them aside to get cold and weren't feeding them. Hence, I'm now hand feeding the pair.
They are 7 and 8 days old in the video and doing fine. We brought the home made incubator up from the basement and installed it for them. It's the same one that we hatched Lady Gouldian eggs in and raised those babies. At least the Linnie eggs were incubated by their parents.
Above is video of them taken yesterday morning, 12/17/2013. The one below is of the home made incubator keeping them warm.
