Being their 1st batch.. leave then to it.. leave the nesting box.
The biggest issue is disturbing the hen.
And make sure have the 2nd nesting box already in the cage .. ready to go.If not when the hen is ready to lay again ( just as the adult feathers appear), she is very likely to consider the current chicks as invaders in her nest...
The male will continue to feed her and finish raising and weaning the current chicks.
Caution with the less shallow nesting boxes the chicks tend to come out early .. not return, and damage themselves as bones etc have not fully hardened up.

Most of our breeding has been in flights.. the cage breeding was more for observation with CCTV camera in the top of the box.
I suggest to add another box..
We , after the novelty warned of, made it a habit of leaving pairs alone...even when had produced 50/ 100+ healthy adults...
damaged/ reject birds reduced dramatically... less than 1% over more than 1000 off spring.
