What can I do. Father cockatiel attacked his babies once they leave the nest. One died one has survived after losing a leg. Still being feed by both parents. Then this morning found the third one has been attacked, bloody and possibly without a leg also

Been told it can’t be the father, happens at night so likely a rat getting to them.. Also been advised they are now too old to hand feed as been out of the nest over a week.
Had birds for over 30 years and never had this happen..
so far this summer 7 babies well , nest boxes taken down.
have been advised to put babies back as both parents have been feeding them…
Have made sure rats and mice unable to get in even though we haven’t seen any in the cage

Unfortunately our yellow baby died yesterday. My husband has made sure nothing can get in we hope..
Our aviary is quite large and we have in the passed had problems with mice but these have been very nasty to our lovely birds.
No more babies allowed for this year or next, it’s going to take a while to get over this..

im sorry for your loss, maybe you can get a medium sized cage for breeding so you can keep a close eye on them

I would consult a vet and separate him from the rest. I am so sorry this is happening to you.
