Im not sure if its an emergency or not, but we have baby cockatail birds and this little one opens its mouth like if it was grasping for air, and i have noticed that her brother dosnt do that. Im not sure what to do with her, Im reallt concerned, and also the mother feeds them and all that, but after shes done she starts plucking their feathers out, and it looks like it hurts, and they try to run away from her.

Cockatiel babies

I don't know either. Please get the bird some help soon. Also, call an experienced breeder and get some help with those babies.

Dr B can not help you because he can not see the bird and examine it.

I am not a breeder, but it sounds like you need to "pull" them and hand feed them. If you do not have experience, then you need to get experienced help.

I hope everything works out for you and the birds.
