    Welcome to BYC! Please make yourself at home and we are here to help.

    I'm very sorry for the loss of the two babies![​IMG]

    You need to remove them and dispose of them so that they don't cause sickness.

    Welcome to BYC! [​IMG] I'm sorry for the loss of the 2 little ones. Bet parakeet babies are cute, I've never seen them in person.
    Good luck to you with the remaining baby and if you have questions, feel free to ask.

    Welcome! [​IMG]I'm glad you joined the BYC "flock".

    I'm sorry to hear about the dead baby parakeets![​IMG] I've never raised cage birds like parakeets myself (only chickens), so am not sure what you should do next. You may get some help if you post in the section that Kelsie2290 linked to.

    Good luck with the remaining baby!
