Violet-green Swallows nestlings

There are now at least five young Violet-green Swallows intermittently sleeping, begging for food, and being fed in the nestbox. They hatched about four or five days ago. The male of the adult pair is now helping by bringing in food occasionally, but I've never observed him to cover the young birds with his own body, nor carry a fecal sack out of the nest.
