Hi All I'm asking for my 16 year old who has the budgies and LOVES them all so dearly. We had a set of parents with 3 babies in a separate cage while they had eggs which have since hatched. Today our daughters new much larger cage arrived, so she transferred parents nesting box and babies to the new bigger cage, thinking more room to fly as they are ready, will help babies. Now the mother has disappeared or escaped somehow. Would a mother abandon her babies? Did we do the wrong thing moving them into the bigger new cage? Will the mother stay close to the cage with babies or take off? Can the Dad budgie care for the babies? Any tips to entice her back? My daughter is now distraught and going to have to handfeed the babies too I presume? Thanks for any help you can provide. Darren
