Default Hen Abandoned Nest as first chick hatched

Hi Guys,
it has been a manic 48 hours and thanks to the joys of the internet and the previous comments on this page we have lasted this long, let me point out our dilemma:

We live in Dubai (UAE) last month I built an Aviary to house 4 budgies (2 cocks & 2 Hens) I have bred Budgies before when I was a young lad but never really had any problems. The temperatures over here are now increasing outside and hovering around the mid 40's (Celsius) mid 30's on a good day. As a result of this the Hen (5 eggs in box) was spending a lot of time out of the box to cool down. The first egg hatched just over a week ago and died shortly after as did the second egg.
I made the decision to move the pair and the box with the remaining eggs inside, this ultimately lead to the hen abandoning the eggs. That night the 3rd egg hatched, 15 hours later she had still not answered his cries so we stepped in.
We have now committed to hand raising the chick (first time experience) google has helped a great deal but was hoping that we could get some help for the powers that be on this site.

We have started the little one on KIKI powder formula for parrots, all going well until last night we became concerned about the appearance of a bubble in the crop, is this something to worry about?

Welcome to Talk Budgies, Steven

Talk Budgies promotes the best practices for the health and well-being of budgies.
Colony Breeding has many risks and inherent dangers and is never recommended.

Before breeding any species, it is important to learn as much about the animals, their personalities and the best practices to follow for responsible and ethical breeding prior to making the commitment to take on the responsibility.
This requires extensive research and an openness to continual learning.

Raising a chick that has just been hatched and abandoned is a huge undertaking.
Do you have experience in how to properly feed the chick using a crop needle?
If not, please contact an experienced breeder, a nearby Zoo or Wildlife Rehabilitation Center and ask for assistance.
Trying to learn from on-line discussions and videos is not the same as having a person there to help you in real-time.

Budgie Hand Feeding and Weaning Guide

If you have a nestbox in the outdoor aviary with the other budgies, I recommend you remove it right away.

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.

Truly, the very BEST advice anyone can offer you is to take the time to read ALL of the stickies throughout the various Talk Budgie forums as well as the Budgie Articles we have posted.

These are great resources for Talk Budgie members and have a wealth of reliable information which will assist you to learn the best practices in caring for your budgies for their optimal health and well-being.

When you upload pictures as thumbnail attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape.

To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as PhotoBucket and follow the steps in these instructions:

For gender and/or mutation help - Lighting and Angle DOES matter

By the way, all photos entered in any of our forum contests must be a full-size photo and not a thumbnail attachment so it's good to know how to upload them!

If you have any questions after reading through everything, please be sure to ask!

Glad you decided to join us and looking forward to seeing you around the forums.

Hi there and to Talk Budgies!

I'm sorry for the situation you currently find yourself in. It never is a good idea to do colony breeding or anything similar to that for the reasons you've discovered. However, I'm glad that you moved the pair and their eggs indoors; that is a much better situation.

You've been given great advice. I hope that the little chick pulls through

Be sure to look through the links provided above, which include the forum's many Budgie Articles and "stickies" (threads "stuck" to the top of each subform for easy reference) to stay up to date on all the best practices for caring for budgies. If you have any questions after reading through everything, be sure to ask as we'd love to help!

Please keep us posted on how things progress!

Cheers!
