For those budgies hatched in June of 2010, and delivered to Parrot Paradise Bird and Pet Supply store on August 5, 2010.

Here is a photo of the parents of this clutch of baby budgies.

On June 14, 2010 August and Georgie’s first chick broke out of its shell. The budgie eggs are only about ¾” at the widest.

On June 16, 2010 two chicks are in the August’s nest.

When laying, a budgie will usually lay only one egg every two days, so the eggs will often hatch two days apart.

In this photo you can see the difference in the size of the two chicks.

July 21, 2010, After two days learning to fly this little budgie tried to land on the top of the glass blender in the kitchen and fell in. The blender was unplugged, but it took us a while to find the poor little thing, and it couldn’t get out on its own. This photo is of the baby budgie after the blender incident, cleaning his/her feathers.

August 5, 2010, August and Georgie’s five chicks, before being taken to Parrot Paradise Bird and Pet Supply store. If you have purchased one of August’s babies, please look after them well. They are good little birds. They like fresh green grass seed when it is still on the end of the grass, as a treat.
