Smile hi i am new n ot sure where to post

Hi all

i am a first timer on here and also have my first budgies hatched.
My Albino hen ended up with 5 eggs. The cock died before they were hatched so
she has to do it alone. 4 of the eggs are hatched but i have 5 babies. One egg is still
unhatched. Could i have twins?

I have moved this post the the breeding section where it is most appropriate.

Have you breed budgies before and are you prepared to support your budgie if needed with raising her babies?
Do you have any other budgies right now?
I don't understand your question about having twins?
How long have you have budgies and have you browsed the forums and read the stickies?

Hi! to Talk Budgies

Yes, it is possible for one egg to have twins -- although it is very rare because there generally isn't enough room for both fetus to grown within the egg.

Are two of the hatchlings much smaller than the others were when they hatched?
Generally if there are twins from a double yolked egg, they don't survive to the point of hatching.
If yours were successful in hatching and manage to thrive, then you have been blessed with a small miracle!

Are you prepared to step in with supplemental feedings for the older chicks if the mother is unable to keep up with feeding and caring for all 6?

I noticed in your profile picture your birds are perched on a wooden dowel rod and wanted to mention it would be best for you to replace wooden dowels with natural wood perches of varying diameters to help prevent pressure sores and bumblefoot.

Good examples of perches are shown in this link:

Bumblefoot

Please take the time to read through the Site Guidelines, all of the How To Guides, the FAQs, the Budgie Articles and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.

You'll find most basic questions about budgies and best practices in caring for them will have been answered after you've read through all of them.

Thank you all for your advice. Yes it is my first time breeding. I did not intend to breed at this early stage until i had armed myself with more information but noticed that my hen seemed to b e nesting in the corner of the avairy. I moved her and her partner to a breeding cage with a nestbox and she laid eggs more or less straight away.
