NOTE - just went back and realized this was a thread from last year... my most recent set of babies has just come out of the nest a couple week ago. The babies in this thread are all grown up now and living in luxury in the flight aviary.
Rio, parakeet babies are born completely bald and naked and feather out slowly. The wing feathers are the first to come in, and then the rest of the feathers come in. They can fly before they are fully feathered out.
One of the babies is coming in a really nice deep blue, the other a turquoise color. I wondered if they would be pied, since the mom is, but I think they are both going to be solids.
