Parents wont recognize the chicks.What do I do?
I have a pair of green cheek conures and we were originally not expecting them to have babies so there was only a small cloth in the cage. But they ended up using the cloth as a nest and now they have two babies. Over time the nest became really dirty so in fear of the babies becoming sick, I changed the nest one or twice, and both times, the parents still returned to the nest.
However today, I decided to once again change the nest but now the parents won't recognize the nest or the babies. What should I do? I've used a hot water bottle filled with warm water to keep the babies warm for a little bit and when I took it away, the mother returned for a little bit and sat on them. Then she left again. Also, the father seemed to feed them a little. Will the parents return for good?
