There's really nothing you can do to intervene at this point.
Make sure they have plenty of nutritious foods, etc.
The male may be feeding the hen and you are not aware of it.
The hen will, if she has to, leave the box to get herself
In the meantime, the male may come around and figure out what
he's supposed to be doing. If they are young, this may be
due to inexperience.
Give them plenty of privacy and try keeping youself away from
them. They may feel threatened by your presence or possible
