Post: Eggs and unweaned chicks
Posted by Rowena on 10/10/05
Hi all. Quick question - I hope-... Keets doing a great
job of raising/feeding the two chicks that hatched, now 31
and 36 days old. Still in the nest box, both still
feathering up, not quite ready to leave the box yet. Mom
has gone and laid another two eggs in with the chicks.
Dad seems to be taking over the feedings. Do I need to
remove the eggs (and any more that are laid) untill the
chicks are weaned? Will mom resume helping with the
feedings? Or has she decided enough is enough with this
clutch? Oh, and is this any where normal? Thanks Rowena
