"We have a pair of zebra finches who have four babies, the babies will be 2 weeks old in a couple days. The parents are now trying to build a nest in a resting place in the cage. They're even trying to use feathers from themselves to line the nest. We're afraid if we take this resting place away and hinder their nest building and possibly more egg laying they'll start kicking the babies out of the real nest they're in. The parents seem to be feeding the chicks because they don't squawk for food all the time. The parents themselves aren't very old. We had them seven days when the female starting laying the first egg. They were pretty much mating in the pet store before we left. No shame there. I'm thinking the only solution is to supply them with a bit of nesting material so they don't pluck each others feathers and if they lay eggs just take the eggs away because at this point we don't need any more babies ! Plus these two need to know they have to look after the ones they have. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks."
