I'd aquire information as fast as possible. It's entirely
possible the male may hurt the babies, so you may need to
remove him till you pull the young from the mother, the
mother should take care of feeding herself and the young.
Find a decent pet store, most offer books on specific
species of birds, find the one that pertains to your breed.
I'd find out immediatly what concerns you should have about
the male and what actions to take with him for the safety of
the young. If your breeding you really need to research how
to hand feed the young so that their social and use to being
handled, most people like their birds hand fed so the will
have to be pull from the mother at an early age, not too
early mind you, you'll also need to look into what equipment
you'll need for when they are first pulled such as a warming
device that you can monitor the temp it needs to be at.
Primary things to find out about the male being in the same
cage tho, then its just a matter of learning when to pull
them for hand feeding and what equipment you need for when
you do. Best of luck and hope the little ones do well.
