    Lorena,

    Go ahead and take a peek! Lovebirds are not noted for
    abandoning chicks if you look inside the nestbox. My habit
    here in my own aviary is to tap gently three times on the
    nestbox lid, then slowly open it. Most of my females will
    get out of the nestbox if the lid is opened. Now, they are
    learning that the three taps means that I'm coming, and many
    of them will get out of the nestbox for me before the lid is
    opened.

    Check the babies quickly and then close the lid of the box.
    The female will go back in and sit on the babies when you are
    done. If she doesn't go back in right away, don't worry.
    Just walk away from the cage and give her privacy. If you
    look back in five minutes, you'll see that she's back in with
    her babies.
