Cock Bird With My Female In Box With Eggs

Recommended Posts

Is it normal for male to stay with female in box with her eggs , he feeds her sometimes but other times just sits there with her i am worried about him breaking the eggs or eating them , am i overacting ? would love feedback please thank you John & Swanacilli .She has five eggs i dont think shes going to lay any more.

I think it depends on the male. I have 2 males that like to sit in with the hen and I have not found any issues with it :(

I couple of my cocks will sit with the hen in the box, if he's not misbehaving in there I wouldn't worry :(

Its actually a larger percentage of my cocks that stay in the nestbox with their hens or are the primary feeders from day one of hatchings. One of my Dads incubates alongside his hen as she lays large amounts of eggs......9 first round 12 second.

I checked another nestbox today to find a new soon to be Dad also sitting and incubating eggs. Counted the eggs and there is 11 !! He is helping keep his share warm.

I think its real cute and a sign of the times....budgies dads that are SNAGS ( sensitive new age guys ) ;)

Most of the male budgies I have incubate their eggs ocasionally and usually are always in the nest box with the female.

I have observed that all the best cock birds sit in with their hens. Sometimes they help incubate the eggs, always they are on hand to help feed the chicks. The best chicks seem to come out of these nests .... the said chicks don't always go on to develop into amazing birds (it depends on the gene pool) BUT these chicks have the best start in life! :rofl:
