Twin Budgies

Hi, I was just wondering how often a budgie will have identical twin babies (double-yolked egg), and if anyone else out there raising budgies has had that happen.

Answer:

This situation is actually pretty rare. And even when it does happen, they rarely make it beyond the egg.

So, it’s really extraordinary that you managed to get twin Budgies! Truly incredible! Thanks for sharing. 🙂

God bless,

by: Anonymous Hmmm, sounds like twins! Let me know if they end up being identical. I just have to wonder if every set of twins is identical with birds, unlike humans…

by: Anonymous I am not sure if they are twins, but we have 2 baby budgies in the nesting box which appeared 2 days ago and are the same size… They both seem to be growing properly though so I am not sure! (a third baby has now hatched)

by: Anonymous I agree, it is totally amazing to have two chicks come out of the same egg, don’t you feel fortunate to have witnessed it? Mine hatched a week before my birthday!

by: Anonymous That is merely a piece of bark on the wall for them to play on. They were hatched and raised in a log the mother hollowed out for them. I still have it!

by: Anonymous Thanks for the comments. yes, the twins are doing just great–they are very lively and playful! I still can’t tell them apart and I don’t think I ever will. They will be one year old in August…

by: Noel Williams I bred Budgies for years and have never heard of twins before. How interesting. Also noted the quaint nest box you’re using. Thanks for posting.
