Father budgie agressive to the 2 oldest babies.


I need avise please. I have 5 baby budgies 5 weeks and younger. The father is attacking the 2 oldest babies and trying to mate with the Mother. What shall I do? I think the babies are too young to move into a new cage and I am afraid to move the father out if the mom stopps feeding the babies.


Answer:

Hi,

If all of the chicks have left the nest box, then you can remove the box and this should help. If he is hurting the chicks you will have to remove him and hope the hen continues to care for them.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,

Brenda
