    Hi all. Quick question - I hope-... Keets doing a great
    job of raising/feeding the two chicks that hatched, now 31
    and 36 days old. Still in the nest box, both still
    feathering up, not quite ready to leave the box yet. Mom
    has gone and laid another two eggs in with the chicks.
    Dad seems to be taking over the feedings. Do I need to
    remove the eggs (and any more that are laid) untill the
    chicks are weaned? Will mom resume helping with the
    feedings? Or has she decided enough is enough with this
    clutch? Oh, and is this any where normal? Thanks Rowena
