YYAAAYYYY!!!!!!!! Guess what everyone???!!! I'm a grandmother!!!!(kinda) Because I just found out some very exciting and happy news............. ONE OF THE PARAKEET EGGS HATCHED!!!!!!!!!! I called my dad and asked about them and he said that he saw a baby parakeet chick! It was peeping loudly and moving around and it's so small!!! Toddra, the new mother, is taking great care of it; my dad only saw it for a moment and then she immediately rolled it under her feathers. And now I guess that kinda makes me a grandmother because Toddra is my pretty little parakeet, who has worked so hard and now her work has paid off! I'm so happy! And this is her first time; except for one time, when she tried hatching about 16 eggs at once. But they weren't fertile, because there wasn't any male. But now she is finally a mother! Baby pictures will be coming soon, you can count on that! Going to dad's house this weekend and bringing camera with me. Be back on Sunday or Monday to post the pics! Now we have to see how well of a mother Toddra is for the baby. She stayed on the eggs for weeks and barely ever got off, and now it's time to feed and care for the delicate little youngster. So we are making sure fresh food, water, and treats are available at all times! We don't know if any other eggs will hatch(when I candled, I found that at least 3 had veins and movement), and there may be more than one right now. It's hard to tell with her sitting on them. But so far, one baby chick was seen, peeping away. Updates well be posted later on! We have never hatched out parakeets before, so this should be a great learning experience and it should be interesting!
