    They aren't going to want to fly around when they have an egg.
    It's instinctual to them to care for their egg.
    I have had a few lay only 1 egg but none were fertile. But
    there really is no set number of eggs. Usually they lay around
    4 but I had one pair who laid 7 eggs and they all hatched.

    Good luck with your little guy.
