So Polly, had three babies, she was very protective of them and loving but after 1 month she had laid another set of eggs and started becoming aggressive to the babies. The 3 can fly now and can eat normally but I had to move them to a new cage because their mama and papa were being mean to them. Polly takes care of her new chicks, but the other babies seem sad was this the best decision?
Hi, you should let your female & male take a break and rest from taking care of babies by removing the nest box after 22-25 days when babies started eating and going outside the nestbox. The same happened to me when Nibbler (female) after 30 days started attacking her own babies. She wanted to lay even more eggs, then I removed the nest box and she calmed.
