Hi.. i'm new to the forum. I have 6 cockatiels plus a newly hatched chick (1 day). Mother and father sat on the eggs (4) faithfully for most of the brooding. A few days ago father pushed a couple eggs out of the nest and sat on them for a while then left them. I put them back in the nest with the mother and she continued to sit on them. Yesterday a chick hatched and father pushed it out of the nest and sat on it then left it. I placed it back in with mother and she took it under her. Same thing tonight only now she is not taking it under her. We have a heat lamp on it but are unsure what to do at this point. Should we continue to try getting mother to take it?
