My lovebird eggs keep half hatching, and then the babys die because the babys are not ready yet. :( Why does this happen?

Is It okay if only one lovebird hatches out of 5 fertile eggs? because the others all died....:(

Baby birds dying

This could be a genetic problem or a disease such as polyomavirus or PBFD. You need to take the parents in for a complete work up including viral screens. You also need to submit the babies for necropsy (animal autopsy). Stop breeding them until you find out what is killing the babies. This is a very serious situation That needs immediate attention.
