Boy it has been a long week! It seems like those Parakeet eggs are never going to hatch! So last weekend, one hatched but then died. we threw out 4 rotten eggs. and at the end of the day we were left with 2 eggs. I candled them and they were both definitely moving. I'm hoping that Toddra knows that they are still alive...she seemed tired and about to give up on them the last time I saw her(last weekend). But my dad says she's still on them, with more breaks than usual. I'm worried that she's not keeping them warm enough, because she doesn't really sit on them all the way all the time. She just stands in the nest box over them. But anyway, no babies so far. Dad says the 2 last eggs are still in there. I had an urge to take them out and raise them myself, but I don't know if it would work or not. I would have to buy the special food to hand-feed them with a syringe, and I would have to feed them every 4 hours. I'm gone at school everyday(except weekends) for 8 hours, and no one else could feed them while I was gone. But I really wanted to take the eggs, put them in the bator, and raise them myself. If it were summer vacation, I would have done it. Oh well....lets just hope Toddra knows that those 2 eggs still have life in them(at least they did when I candled them). Thanks and please please hope and pray for these 2 little eggs. They are the last ones left and if they don't make it then we won't have any babies and we will have to wait a few months before we try again. Thanks!
