I'm a grandma :D - Page 2

post #31 of 40
As they start to get older...mom and dad will spend more time out of the nest (mostly pigging out on food because it takes alot to feed all of them once they start to get bigger). I would try to clean it then.

What are mom and dads favorite foods right now?

I have only had cockatiels that have had babies. I would love to be able to see little lovies grow up some day.

Wait til they learn how to fly..now thats a trip. You are so lucky to have babies right now.

Will try that then.

They love their seeds more than anything I think. They don't care for the pellets that much at all.
Fave veggie is definitely broccolli(probably as much as their seeds ). Fruit.... probably grapes. They don't care for the pasta or grains too much either.. but they pick at it.

Another hatching during the night. So I think one more will hatch.. one egg is darker than all the rest so I figure that one is bad and this last egg will hatch.

Bad news.

Baby4 died. I'm not sure from what, if one of the bigger chicks smothered him or if Mama did Im not sure. But he still had food in his crop so I can't imagine he was sick.

Also lost baby1 and baby5.

One also hatched yesterday.

I think I am going to pull the older two and handfeed.. just because I can't risk that it's moms fault. With mom being handfed theres a pretty good chance that she just doesn't know what she's doing.
