    :p First i have to say i am so excited and happy!!!
    I need some help and advice to try and recognize any problem so i won't loose the baby.

    I was about to take away the nest box when she started to lay eggs again so I had to put it back in, and she had 8 eggs this time, the first 3 were clear but the 4 and 5 were fertilized and 6,7,and 8 were not..... o.k to make a long story short yesterday night egg number 5 has hatched and the other, number 4 was dead in the egg so I removed it from the nest box.

    Now if you can give me some tips of what I need to do it will be a great help.

    I feed them a crushed boiled egg with dark bread and soft cooked veggies and some lettuce, the problem I have is that the male has freaked out and he does not go in the nest box and the female goes out to eat and I saw her (one time) trying to feed the baby when he is on his back.

    I still hear him chirping every 15-20 minutes so I think she is feeding him or he would be dead by now...no?

    please take some time to try and answer my questions and give me advice.

    Thanks in advance,

    I dont think u should worry if you dont see the male going in. when i had my first clutch of tiels i was worried the male wasnt playing his part. everytime i would check on them the female was always in the box and he was always eating. but if i checked early enough, or real late at night the male would be in and the female out.

    congrats on your new baby!
