Hi there one of the 3 eggs hatch today, mommy bird is keeping the other 2 fertile eggs warm and the daddy bird is not keeping the baby warm I'm concern he is out of the nest box so long worried that tonight the baby Wil get cold mom is to busy with her eggs it's winter here and it's gets really cold at night I have a heating mat under the nest box Wil the baby be okay? Really hoping the dad will sleep in the nest box while the mom takes care of the eggs. One of the eggs looks like there is a blood ring inside the other egg is already in hatching mode then there is a very small egg that did not look fertile.

The heating pad SHOULD be enough to keep them warm. I have three one week old babies in the nest box right now and mom and pop take turns sitting with them. As long as that egg with a blood ring doesn't go dark, it may STILL hatch.
