This is common with cockatiels. They will normally keep on taking care of the older chicks, but you will need to stop them from starting a third clutch a few weeks from now when the babies from the second clutch are getting close to fledging age. Cockatiels are opportunistic breeders who will keep going as long as you let them, but it's not healthy for them to have more than two clutches a year.
