We've had parakeets few years. had a clutch of 2 about 2 1-2

Customer Question

Hello. we've had parakeets for a few years. had a clutch of 2 about 2 1-2 months ago who were raised well by the parents and now are independent in the cage. Another clutch of 6 eggs was laid, 5 hatched over time ranging from 4wks to 2wks ago.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help the bird. What is the bird's name?
Customer: We had moved them into a larger cage, but noticed another bird (not parnt) interacting with the mother, then nobody was going in the cage so we started hand feeding, father started feeding a little, we separated the other third adult parakeet but suddenly last night the mother was attcking the young.
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about The mother?
Customer: 1 died sadly, we separated them out and 4 survived
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.

They are doing better since last night after a couple hand feedings, but need to know how to manage wounds on the smallest one, and I must travel today until Sat night. Boarding for the birds in the hospital would be $500 per night so $1000 for the trip. Ok to take them with us in their nest box in the car for our trip, feeding them every few hours as needed?
