Congrats on the babies. How did you not know they had eggs lol?
Also, how old are the chicks? Are they fully featherd? Do you mean they have fledged from the nest? If so it's a bit late to hand rear them now. If they have fledged you can not remove them away from the parents just yet, they need to be able to fly, and eat by themselves still.

They have all thier feathers and are out of the nest and can fly, although being young they are a bit clumsy at the moment. The nest box she used was high in the aviery so I couldnt see inside. Up till now all the eggs they laid had come to nothing and they have had a lot of them so it was nothing unusual to see her disappear into the box for a day or two. They are coming on great and will sit on me for ages
I reckon tiels and budgies are pretty much the same in that I have removed budgies from their parents the first time I have seen them eating seed. I have removed budgies for pets that way rather successfully.
