Can baby conures be disformed by their parents when stressed?

by Jessica

I have a female and a male green cheek conure. I left home for four days for family and I didn't want to take my birds with me because they had just had two babys hatched. The first was strong and healthy when I left. When I got back his head was shaking and he seemed like he was cold.

His shoulder looked odd, not like it should and when he was born he had some feathers and now there all gone, and his head looks like his mother or father had been picking on him. The last batch they had was just fine but I was home the whole time. Would the mother hurt her baby because of stress?
