Hi Please don't judge too harshly because my intentions were/are so great for my babies big and small. Last summer, I lost my beloved cockatiel and I was completely wrecked. A few months later my husband let me know that a very sick friend of ours needed to rehome a very bonded pair of male green cheek conures and asked if I wanted to take them. Why, yes!!! As time went by it became apparent to me that they probably weren't both male. They were pretty affectionate and it didn't take a rocket scientist to figure out what was up. Then "Charlie" started laying eggs. In my ignorance I put in a nesting box. I didn't know what to do. (I should have came here :/) Now we have 4 very healthy babies. They've been raised by their parents exclusively and while the parents are totally cool with the fact I've been handling them in short spurts, the oldest (who just turned four weeks yesterday) seems very not cool with being handled. The other 3,who each hatched about a week apart after that, are doing well. Loving a bit of cuddles. But the oldest, Augustus, isn't liking it much. I've planned on keeping one, with excited family members in wait to adopt the others but is it too late for Augustus? Should I pull them all and begin the weaning process? This will obviously be their only clutch. It was unexpected and I was ignorant. I am willing to keep all four, if I have to...if I've messed everything up...I just can't be sure. I really need help. I want to do right by these babies but I need advice on how to proceed for them to have their best lives possible.
