Default Do parents feed too much?

My couple cockatiels have 2 chicks and they're feeding them too much. The normal look is like that and they're feeding even more than that. What can I do for this? It's their first incubation. I put a hot water bag and kept apart the chicks for a couple of hours to let them rest.

Those chicks look good to me, I would be careful pulling them because if the temps are not ideal in the brooder or box you put them in then they can get slow/sour crops.. if you think they are stretching the crops too much then you can put crop bras on the babies to make sure everything can empty out of the crop. If you think the parents are feeding too much , maybe offer them a bit less soft warm foods.

It's normal for the crops to be this full.
