I have two brand new baby lovebirds. This is her first clutch. I am not sure she is feeding her babies. She is laying on them just as she would on her eggs. But I have been trying to quietly watch and it doesn't appear as though she is feeding them. One was born yesterday and the other was born during the night. A baby was laying in position to eat (on its back) beside the mama bird but I am not sure she is feeding it.
My local pet store has baby bird formula but when do we step in and try to feed the baby? After you feed it with a syringe, do the babies stay in the mamas nest or do you put them in a brooder?

If you put a little formula on the baby's beak would the mama realize that it is food and that she should be feeding her baby?

How long can a baby live after hatching if she is not feeding?

Thank you in advance!

Carmen
