    Cockatiel chicks overfed by Parents?

    I have no experience with cockatiel chicks. Can they be over fed by the parents? They are not being overfed. Their crop shrinks in between meals. I have been cleaning the nest box three to four times a day! Their pin feathers are coming in and you can see their crest. I have updated my pictures. Click on link if you would like to see them.

    Oh, the babies are so cute. Such pretty little pearl babies!

    Sometimes it may seem like their crops are soooo full that they might burst, but they don't. You have very good, dedicated parents. And the fact that the crops are emptying between feedings is good. If they weren't, then you would have to worry about sour crop, but that doesn't seem to be an issue here.

    The babies look good and healthy. Congrats!
