The male and female were taking turns to sit on the eggs or together.
But this morning the male has flown away. The female has been sitting on the eggs all-day .
Will she come out to eat and drink.
I'm worried for her.

Will she be able to hatch the eggs by herself?
I think the eggs are very soon to hatch.


Thanks in advance

Ok....when you say the male has flown away, do you mean it like flew out the door and is gone? Yes, One parent can raise the hatched chicks alone but it will be harder on her. If the male doesn't return to help out, I'm hoping your planing on hand feeding the chicks at about the third week. That will take A LOT of stress off the female and give her a much needed rest by then.

Hi it turns out that it's the female who has flown away. The male is still sitting on the eggs so far. What are the chances of survival for the eggs . ?
Thank you for answering.

You still didn't answer my question, HOW does a pet bird just fly away??? Once again, the chances are good the chicks will survive with one parent IF they hatch.

Don't you just love people who want their own answers, but can't be bothered to answer someone else's :( You must know what 'just flew away' means though Robert, because you're also on a Cockatiel forum & can mind read, pmsl. Maybe it's a language thing, after all, you're speaking American & Annie is speak Australian lol

O wow that became nasty quite quickly.
Wasn't expecting this.
When I said flew away. Yes it meant flew away. The cage door was left open by mistake and the bird flew away.
I was quite distressed when I put the question on the form as I had no idea what to do. Thinking I might get some help.
For some reason I didn't get a notification that someone has posted on my thread, and by this time I had asked a local pet shop who hand raised birds.

And ever since then I have been spending day and night looking after a baby cockatiel which hatched and the father had abandoned.
This is my first time and you know what I was just asking for help.
Shame on you.

Annie, it's basic common sense that when someone asks you a question, you simply answer it, job done. I know you can't grasp this concept, but imagine what would have happened if you had asked your question, for people to then respond to everything else but NOT what you had asked, wouldn't it start to irritate you too?
If you really think any of the above comments were 'nasty', you need to see what idiots put on Twitter everyday, to know the difference.
As for notifications, you don't erally need them. Again if you apply common sense, you'd know you have posted asking something , so you could just come in & check at any point.
There's no shame on anyone either, but it shows that you wrongly assume that we should simply be here to answer only what you want, when you want, for you to ignore anything we ask. This attitude isn't necessary but if you want to apportion blame, go to the one person who failed to answer a question & then never returned for 17 days :)

I do hope the baby is doing okay though, as none of this is their fault.
