Post: Pulling Babies
Posted by Becky on 2/17/06
I have another question. I read that lovebirds feed their
babies on their backs the first few days after hatching.
But I had a friend tell me that I could pull the babies
sooner then 10 days for handfeeding. I do not want to deal
with feeding them if they have to be feed on their backs.
Does anyone have a schedule for feeding that they could
share with me? I pulled 2 babies yesterday because the
last of 6 eggs hatched and I was afraid it would be too
much for mom and dad. I am feeding them 5 times during the
day stating at 7 and ending at 11. I do not know when to
cut back. Is it the same as tiels? I have handfed 2
clutches of tiels now and all went fine.
