should I remove the last clutch

by JEFF GELINAS

My mating pair have successfully raised three chicks. The pair are showing signs of wanting to mate again. Should I remove the three younger birds before I reintroduce a box for the pair?

I would remove the juveniles as long as they are no longer being fed by their parents. Sometimes if they are all left together there will be some parental aggression, especially if the juvenils want to get in the nest box too.

Sorry for the delay in responding.

Best Wishes, Jeanie
