Default Budgie helping raise tiel babies

Our budgie Sam, who was raised with our pair of cockatiels when all were youngsters and has always been housed with them, has started helping feed their brood of chicks. He also preens and feeds both parents. The adults, having known Sam since they were only a few months old, are totaly trusting of the parakeet and seem to appreciate the help.

That's awesome!!! I would be very watchful though just in case. I had three tiels raise a clutch together one year and the next year, the main male wouldn't let his buddy help anymore and started fighting with him. Tiels can be picky sometimes lol.

I count seven babies in that nest. That's a fairly large clutch, so maybe the parents are grateful for the extra help!

That's very cute! I have two cockatiels and two budgies, and they get along quite well.
