Post: Male parakeet killed the babies
Posted by Jen on 8/04/06
Sad news . . . . Last evening, my male parakeet entered
the nestbox and killed the two babies that had hatched as
well as destroyed the rest of the clutch. What happened?
This was his first husbandry, so does this mean that he now
learned that he can do that and will do the same for all
subsequent clutches? Should he be removed from the
breeding cage? Should I try again w/ him? The hen is a
very experienced mother, so what if I let her brood and
raise the young alone?
Lots of questions, I know, but you guys are the place to go
for the answers. Thank you!
