Hi why would the mother attack her babies and will she do this again in the future. She was a first time parent her partner was outside the nest box when she attacked them. I'm just very sacred she does this again the babies was 3 days and Older. I tried to safe all 4 of them. But after a few days they passed away. I tried my best I hardly slept over those few days there was not much I could do. So please no nasty comments. I'm now worried my other female might end up doing the same it Wil be her first time too. Does this happen allot to new bird parents do they get to overwhelmed and tired how can I prevent this in future.
