Hi, gun
I don't think you have any experience raising birds, do you? That act is not to disturb their parents is their instinct. If you are bothered, you can feed the mother and baby bird.

The OP had raised 3 other lovebird chicks previously in another thread. This is her second time with eggs and there has been no confirmation if the new clutch has hatched.

Hi, dontaskwhy! Thanks for asking.

It's been nearly five weeks since she started laying her eggs, and I'm now starting to suspect that the eggs are not fertile.

It was on Feb. 20th when I saw the first two eggs. A few days later she had a total of five. I'd read that lovebirds don't start incubating until all the eggs have been laid, and then it's about three weeks until hatching. She's still diligently sitting the eggs, and her mate helps out with incubating, as well.

What do you think? Should I give her another week, or just give up and remove the eggs?

You probably should give it a little more time, but I suspect they are not fertile eggs. Same parents from the previous clutch ?

Have you ever "candled" an egg before (don't use a real candle) ? You can use a bright flashlight and take the eggs in a dark place. Place the eggs in the light and it will show if there is a developing chick or not. If the parents are willing to allow you, it can be done directly in the nest without having to remove the eggs. Try using a bright, but small flashlight. LED flashlights work best. As long as you don't heat up the egg, it wouldn't harm a developing chick.

I've got a baby!!! I peeked in this morning and didn't see anything at first, but then I saw something pink wiggle a little. I looked harder, because I couldn't believe what I was seeing. There was the chick, nestled between three eggs. There were originally five eggs, so I don't know if there's another hatchling in there -- I only kept the box open long enough to take a quick picture. Here she is!



Should I name her "Corona"? Coz she's stuck in the box just like I'm stuck at home.

Congratulations, Momma. That name would be timely. Best wishes. Same pair of lovebirds ?

As a fellow bird owner (conure, in my case), congrats!
