Mom bird feeds babies feathers

THIS IS NOT NORMAL AND WILL KILL THE BABIES. It could mean mother bird is sick or is not eating a high quality diet rich in vitamins, minerals and proteins. If she is a parrot, she should be eating an organic, high quality pelleted diet which is 80-85% of a parrot's diet. No people food, no table food, no odd foods with any type of spices, just parrot pellets and fresh fruit and veggies several times a week in small amounts,

Your bird needs to be taken to an Avian Vet as soon as you can because she will kill the babies feeding them this type of garbage.This means all the babies have to go as well as the whole family is probably sick. Next time, before you breed, take parents to Avian Vet to be checked out BEFORE BREEDING, and learn how to handfeed baby parrots with a syringe and baby parrot handfeeding formula found on this site. Your babies are probably going to die without proper food, and you must be prepared next time to know how to feed the babies all the way to weaning time. Find a parrot breeder in your area and ask them for help feeding the babies because they are going to die if they are not syringe fed the baby parrot handfeeding formula. This is a learned skill, and someone has to show you how to do it correctly.Get everyone to an Avian Vet first to clear them of infections.
