You have to leave the eggs alone. If you touch them then the mother might not take care of them. Hopefully she will move them to the box herself or continue to sit on them and maybe you will get hatchlings.

Hello,

If you wish to keep eggs - make sure ur birds have enough vitamins (usually put some liquid vitamins in the water, that I bough at the pets store), variety of fresh vegetables, fresh water and cuttle bone.

If you wish to not breed your birds - reduce sunlight, take out nest box, reduce protein consistent food.

Egg food is dry food made of eggs, you can buy it in any pet store. You can start candling eggs after 4-5 days they are laid.

Thank you!
