24 hour babies

Help. My 24 hour baby cockatiels haven’t been fed. They are sitting on them, but no feeding. If I should intervene, what can I feed them? I don’t have formula. Can I feed them crushed up oatmeal with some water? Thank you.

Not oatmeal! Will clog up their bodies and cause death. They need baby formula if needed. Can find at pet stores. As the babies are so young, parents may feed them tomorrow. They are very instinctual. I don't see cause for you to worry at this point in time. Parental instinct will kick in.
