Eat 15% of cuttlebone with calcium in 3 days, eatin helthy food veggie, fruits, pillets mix with 15% seeds, vitamins added to their food and more calcium to the food added too.
I have usually cover them at night time as 10pm to 8-30 am., but I was to many read through searching ,
that parents start to fed their babies from 6 am to 10pm , maybe at night time too...I don't know.

Not knowing anything about your parrotlets, feeding them pellets with 15% seeds sounds like a bad idea, especially not knowing what pellets you are feeding. Parrotlets can have kidney damage if they eat too many pellets, especially those who are either a mutation or split to a mutation.
The added vitamins and calcium added to the food *ON TOP* of the pellets also concerns me, as it is possible for them to get vitamin toxicosis (aka vitamin overdose).
As far as feeding goes, well parents can also feed at night when it's completely dark, so that should not be an issue.
Do you need to cover them at night? Well, I don't know. Do you remain up after covering them? If so, then probably. However, if you go to bed early or they are in a room where they wont be disturbed by you, then you don't necessarily have to cover them.
If you have a male and female pair, they may not feel comfortable enough to reproduce in your living-room, but who knows.
Are you sure you have a male and female and not a same sex pair?
