love birds


Hi my male love bird was eaten by rat. can the female finish the process of hatching their eggs by her self?


Answer:

Hi,

I’m sorry about your male. The hen most likely will not continue with the clutch, and if she tries, it will be very hard on her. It is more important to find ways to protect her from predators. Rats are just one danger, but there are many other predators such as snakes and even domestic pets.

Take care,

Brenda
