Post: Male parakeet killed the babies

    Sad news . . . . Last evening, my male parakeet entered
    the nestbox and killed the two babies that had hatched as
    well as destroyed the rest of the clutch. What happened?
    This was his first husbandry, so does this mean that he now
    learned that he can do that and will do the same for all
    subsequent clutches? Should he be removed from the
    breeding cage? Should I try again w/ him? The hen is a
    very experienced mother, so what if I let her brood and
    raise the young alone?

    Lots of questions, I know, but you guys are the place to go
    for the answers. Thank you!
