well you don't have to take the first egg, unless you KNOW the pair sit tight on it right when it is layed,most times they don't sit the first one. If you do need to take the first egg so both nestlings are the same size, you then would put a dummy egg in the nest and take the first egg, and wait till the second is layed and then put the real one back and remove the dummy egg. you would want to put the real egg in a cool place on something soft and turn it a couple time in the day.

It depends on the pair. I have one pair that starts incubating after both eggs are laid. They hatched at the same time. Most of my pair seems to do that stupid thing when they start incubating the first layed egg so one baby ended up bigger than the other one. I've never taken an egg out so I suppose you are supposed to put in a place that has the temperature inside the loft. I will probably put mine inside a kitchen cabinet.
