They stay with the parants..
When they leave the nest, they still dont have the iris in the eye
This forms about 2 weeks later
During this time the male conyinues to feed/wein them
The female is in the other nesting box, so they dont go there...she defends that real well, may even kill any intruders...on the other hand may not mind ...depends on personality
The problem with leaving the off spring in the same flight, is it can become very difficult to tell who is who.

Generally when all left in a flock, they provide a very stable, entertaining community.

BUT...such a community needs far more maintaince...more regular cleaning, enough and fresh water EVERYDAY day, consistant food supplies
When doing this, seriously think about installing automatic water supply.
