I HAVE TO KAKS MALE AND FEMALE,I GOT THESE ABOUT 12 WEEKS AGO.
ABOUT FOUR WEEKS AGO I HAD EGGS IN THE BOX, JUST OVER A WEEK AGO ONE EGG HATCHED,BUT AFTER 2 DAYS THE CHICK WAS DEAD AND THE REST OF THE EGGS DID NOT HATCH: IS THERE SOMETHING IM DOING WRONG, THESE BIRDS ARE IN A VERY LARGE CAGE
You are not doing anything wrong. When one of my pairs first had eggs last year the same thing happened ( newbie parents) . All of the eggs hatched but the chicks only survived a few days. On their second attempt only 2 out of 5 eggs hatched and luckly the chicks survived and are stong birds 6 months later. Make sure they have plenty of fresh fruit and veg daily ( they love dandilion leaves, boiled eggs and shells ). Don't expect all of the eggs to hatch. Any that do hatch and survive see them as a bonus we do. Good luck for next time round.
