Subject: Heart-broken

I keep my buttons outside in an aviary with cockatiels, Rosy Bourkes, and ringneck doves. I was thrilled a few months ago when my two females and one male hatched out six chicks. Unfortunately, because I am just learning about these birds, only one chick survived. I never saw any aggression from the male, but I was not always out there. We were having cold mornings at the time, and I thought the moms weren't doing a good job of brooding the babies. Anyway, this morning I found the survivor dead, and his mother too. I can kind of understand why the male would kill a second male in the group, but why kill the female? I am, as I said above, heart-broken. What am I doing wrong?
