Adorable Budgies; From an egg to a fledgling

Click here for full article: "Keeping Budgies: From an egg to a fledgling
This is a simple little story of how a budgie egg is laid and goes on to become a fledgling ready to leave the nest.

It all starts, of course, with the male and female both being in breeding condition and mating.
The first egg is usually laid around 10 days after a successful mating and then every other day until the clutch is laid. The mother sits in the nestbox most of the time and the father feeds her. At between 18-23 days after the first egg is laid, the chick hatches."
