    Generic breeding question

    So I have no intention of massive breeding of my finches (Plan to breed once in the future and limit to two chicks), but I am curious how one avoids the problems I am about to propose.

They live free in the house, and can go wherever they...

I discovered that the father lovebird was plucking the babies' down feathers and so I removed them from the nest for handrearing and protection from the father...
