Remove the male to a separate cage immediately because they may kill each other or one will kill the other. Do not use this pair again for breeding. Leave the hen in cage with nest box to see if she lays eggs and sits on them. Keep male's cage where she can see him.

The male does not feed the babies, and only the hen does the feeding. You may need to know how to handfeed baby birds using baby parrot handfeeding formula using a syringe or spoon. If you do not know how to do this, then get with a breeder in your area and learn before any babies hatch. If the mother abandons them, and this is possible since this has been such a bad situation for her, you will either feed the babies or watch them die. Handfeeding is a learned skill, and you can kill babies if you do not know how to do it correctly, so find out.

Do not put this pair back together ever.

Thanks for writing,
Linda
