Hi! I am new at breedind kakariki's.I have one in the nest the baby is doing really good.I just want to know if we should throw out the rest of the eggs as it would be nearly 2 weeks since the baby has hatched. If anybody can help me.
If the chick is 2 weeks old the other eggs wont hatch now. It is always a good idea to remove the remaining eggs as sometimes they can be broken in the nest box which can lead to disease. This is especially true if the egg has a partly formed embryo inside.
Removing the eggs now should not create any problems as the hen would be turning her attention to the chick and not sitting on the remaining eggs.
