I had a male cockatiel for 10 year. Last summer he got out. I was reunited with him again in March, the woman who had him also had another cockatiel she has rescued. I took the both of them from her after she told me they were male. Unfortunately they bonded and weren't male and male the 2nd bird was female.

I am wondering if after the eggs are hatched and I get rid of the young cockatiels. Can I seperate the parents? I would like to get rid of the female and just have the male, but I am afraid what would happen to him once she is gone. Would this move "kill" him?

Any help on this matter is appreciated .

Is he still tame? We have a resident teil here at the shop who loves his roommates. Once the babies all go to new homes he is perfectly fine with being a bachelor. If you bird is tame I would say go for it. However, if he is no longer tame I would keep them together and just nix the nest box. Thi will keep you from having issues with more babies.
