Default Needing advice

I am new to budgie breeding and I am needing advice on when my babies should have left the nest by. The youngest baby is the only one left in the box and is making no attempt to come out at all (it is 5 weeks old). The other baby has been out of the nest for around 1 week and is coping well although still being fed by mum and dad.

When do the babies usually leave the nest box and should I take it out to give it a little bit of encouragement. I am wanting to take the nest box away asap so that the parents are able to have a rest before I breed them again.

I know this is not asking about genetics or mutations but I couldn't post in the breeding journal part as I haven't made enough posts yet.
