Well, a couple weeks back our pair of parakeets decided to start up a little family... And now we have 3 biddies. The first two are about a week old, the third is only a couple days. The first one already has his/her little eyes open though, thought they weren't supposed to do that until they were ten days? Anyways, everyone seems healthy and happy. Their mom, Spudgie, is taking good care of them, although their father's care leaves a lot to be desired. Spudgie is semi tamed; will sit on fingers, eat millet from hands, etc. Fidget, their father, on the other hand is crazy, just never settled. He was a rescue we found dumped in a busy parking lot, with a note saying free bird. Some people. My main question is when to start taming the babies, and/or how? I have Googled and read like a mad man, and it seems everyone has a different idea as to where and how to start! Any other general advice would be greatly appreciated as well!
