well I think it depends, if you race and working on the next round of eggs then they are removed, if you have pets or fancy pigeons and not another section to put the young ones in then you can leave it . I had to do this with my seraphim, I did not have a spot for it so he stayed with the parents for a loooong time, he was such a baby. the parents even let him stay with them in the nest box to hatch another egg and still fed him way after he was old enough to eat on his own, he finally got weaned when the other younger baby got his feathers, but sometimes he begged his dad for food still, his dad was very patient to say the least.
of course if he was being picked on hard I would of had to do something else.
