It is time to toss it out, but you can put a fake egg in with the baby to keep the space filled and allow him something to lean on the first few days.

Did you candle the eggs at five days incubation? It helps, you know what to expect. Some babies do die in incubation and in that case it is good to find out what happened.

We have a "couple" nesting on the pillars of our front porch. They started a nest on one pillar and then moved to another pillar. They are now sitting on the first pillar, but don't seem to be working on the nest. We are confused. Are they? Is this usual behavior?
