    Are you leaving your eggs in t.he nest or are you placing them in an incubator?? I'm jw because I have ringnecks and when she laid her eggs I didn't know whether I should've left them in her nest or take them immediately and place them in the incubator.. Also she'd make new nests everyday and sporadically lay them around the pen.. So idk what I need to do- any thoughts????

    i have a GQF so yes i took them all and put them into the incubator !! but you can do as you please but do not hold the eggs for over a week as that might lower the rate of them hatching. As of now i have about 150 eggs!!!
