Question Separating baby budgies?

Hi,

10 days ago, two baby budgies hatched in my cage. They are doing well. However, the last egg just hatched today.

The 10-day old baby budgies are quite large now and the newborn budgie is very small. I am scared the newborn baby will be neglected by the mother or injured by their older siblings.

Would it be a good idea to separate the two older budgie babies for a few minutes so that the mother budgie can tend to the newborn and then place the older babies back?

Thanks

Do you mean that you would hand-feed the others? Have you done that before with a lot of success? It's kind of complicated in theory...Oh-- wait...I see what you are saying--- in terms of separating just a few minutes...I am going to lean towards no on that, but I have limited experience myself, so I am hoping more experienced breeders chime-in. Don't act on my word alone.
