or do I just mind my own fecking business and let her do as she pleases?
@sunnyring thoughts PLEASE!!!
ok decision made ..... fecking leave her to do as she pleases and if they come out looking like sardines it's not me fault
Yep. They quite obviously know exactly what they do and do not want. She may lay fewer if there's less space anyway?
still not going to look just going to wait and see but lets try for a date count up ......
The day after I posted this she moved back into the original nesting place sooooo trying to work out when babies would be due ...... her last clutch was 7
So from 22nd then perhaps laying 7 eggs .... hmmm add 20 days (ish) for incubation start date unknown.... and we have ..... ..... haven't a fecking clue ! But must been soon....ish!!
There are four cockatiel eggs as well but as the last lots have been clear not too concerned they are old birds and much loved the newbies I have out there aren't paired so not an issue this year.
@sunnyring thoughts please get your calculator out lol
anybody care to lay just for fun bets? - ie no stake just a wild guess
lol I favour leave them to it and wait see what happens method! calculations generally a bit pointless as they never read the books. I will however follow this thread with interest as always like to hear of prospect of new babies
Aww just seen that someone down here is selling a male Kak with cage £60, the female became egg bound & died.
No I cannot have it, it really needs to go with others I think. Just hope it finds a proper home.
Go save it Diana you now it's going to drive you nutty as to what has happened to the darling and if it's safe
Jenni ..... your right and as for babies ...... they're going to your house so may as well follow them to fledging and weaning
lol would love them but sadly aviary really not big enough to add laughing thugs.
just staggered down to my aviary - clinging to fence in dressing gown and hoping neighbours don't see to check on my gang. good job i did as obviously was completly out of it last night when did feed and managed to lock fledgling male cockatiel in safety porch.. he was ok as parents were feeding him through wire . left him in and then he really harassed parents for food- didn't watch for long the noise that youngster makes is like nails down black board when begging. all the other birds in aviary seemed to be resentfully glaring at cockatiels like '' can't you shut that child up?''
still waiting .... but then again I'm not looking either
well one egg is infertile. I looked into the cockatiel chosen nesting area they still have four eggs, there are no budgie eggs so by process of elimination its a kaks.
It was on the floor the other side of the aviary with a crack in it partially opened the the shell and YUCK ok make that MEGA YUCK a gone off egg.
Such is life and one less egg hatching so one less baby to find a home for. Wonder if any of the others are infertile too?
How long is the incubation process for Kaks?
from third egg laid its 19-21 days
but as I don't know when third egg was laid it's anybody's guess
They either will or won't hatch and they will or won't survive having seen how upset the cock bird gets there is no way I am going to even look in the direction of the nest!
and ...... still waiting
for heavens sake .... beginning to think she's hard boiling these eggs instead of incubating!
Pipped eggs are being thrown out the nest today hopefully the gigglers that have arrived safely will be looked after by mum and dad and in due course I may get to find out who and how many
two pipped eggs and one dead in shell that has just been removed by the hen and zero idea how many are in there.
If they are ok fine if not then nature will take her course and that is the way of the world.
Pipped shells look to be before today so looks like she's nest cleaning ...... hmmmmm
cockatiels still have theirs so it's not them don't expect theirs to hatch anyway.
