Mother bird needs vet visit?

Hello all,

I am very new to breeding and baby birds, and never intended to breed my birds at all. However, my parakeets were determined despite all my efforts to prevent it. They now have 3 babies (10 days, 8 days, and 5 days old) and 3 eggs still in the nest.

Mama bird got a fright tonight and when I went to check on her I heard a soft clicking with her breath, which I know means trouble. I’m going to call the vet tomorrow, but what can I do about transporting her when she needs to keep the babies fed and warm? It is about 30 degrees F outside here so far far too cold for baby birds. Any advice would be appreciated!

Can you call the vet and ask for the best way to deal with this situation?

They may suggest bringing the chicks if possible or maybe they will do a home visit.
