Congratulations, Cindy! I know these babies will be beauties when they grow up and look forward to many, many photos of them

Thanks everyone for your well wishes & congratulatory posts.

I do have a concern that some of you may be able to help me with.

The picture below shows the location of the basket where the babies are. There is nothing under them except the floor, which is quite a ways down.

I would like to move the basket over to the area above Rae Charles' cage. Would this disrupt Sadie & Malio caring for the babies? The move isn't that far & the area where I would like to move them is where Sadie & Malio hang out when they aren't in the basket.

I don't want to do anything that would upself Mom & Dad but I do worry about the babies possibly falling out of the basket to the floor.

Appreciate any input.

Cindy

Cindy,
I think the babies will be ok. My nest boxes are much higher than the basket in the picture and I have never had a baby fall out. The only time that happened was when a baby hatched on top of one of the nesting boxes. That baby did survive the fall.
Just think about where pigeons build their nests...

I'm certainly no expert and others may disagree, but I don't think moving the "nest" over Rae's home would be a problem. Knowing DADDY Malio, he would follow those babies anywhere...and I bet Sadie wouldn't be far behind!

You are only talking a few feet or so, not a half a mile...

Sure gonna be fun see the "developing" pictures!

LOVE, HUGS, and SCRITCHES

Appreciate your thoughts Charis & Shi.

When Sadie & Sam arrived, they shared a large cage with Mikko & Pij'ette, & their basket was right on the floor of the cage, so I knew if they did fall out they wouldn't have fallen very far.

Here's a picture of them contemplating taking their first bath.
Sadie (our new Mom) is on the right.

ABSOLUTELY PRICELESS PIC!
Just want to scoop em' up and kiss their little beaks!

Thanks for sharing such a heart warmer!!!

btw: I like the little net idea or something under the nest not to take any chances with mom & dad getting mad and saying, "Here wiseguy, you can take care of them now!"

Cindy, what a WONDERFUL surprise & blessing!
I can't wait to see more pictures of those sweet babies. If you haven't moved the nest, place some sort of padding under it ~ pillows, blankets or towels.

Congratulations to all of you!

Postings of placing something under the nest is a great idea, but I think in Cindy's situation, not that practical...

Cindy, I wouldn't worry about the babies where they are for now. It will be a couple of weeks before they even THINK about trying to move around or go anywhere. The first two weeks they just sit around. At that point however, I think it would be ok to move them somewhere with a "bottom". It will be easier to feed them and IF they start trying to get out of the basket, they would be safe.
