We have realised that the father is plucking the babies feathers on their wings. I wanted some advice on this and whether this should he a concern? I have been told that it's not too bad but the dad has been in the box for hours and we keep hearing the babies chirp as if they are in pain? ( it's not the hungry call).
Should we separate the babies? Or the dad? If so, how should we go about this?
I do want the parents to still feed the babies so if I don't have to separate them I won't. They are 3.5 weeks old today. Dad is still feeding them etc...more than the mom.
