Often the parents will pick on the babies when they want them to leave the nest, so they can have another clutch. The best thing you can do is to take the babies from the parents and hand raise them; then take their nest box down so they do not have a place to lay and incubate.

Be sure that your birds on on pellets(like Harrison's) to be sure that they are getting a complete and balanced diet, which is the only way to be sure the female does not become egg bound.
