Default Worried about hayching the cockatiel eggs

My Cockatiel layed her first egg on 16th March, and she layed her second egg after 4 days , but from past 5 days she has not layed any egg. I am worried neither she is sitting on the eggs nor the male is sitting on the eggs to hatch.

Should I buy a incubator after testing the fertility of the egg. I have also placed cuttlebone in her cage in the starting she used it but now she doesn't eat it.

Please suggest what to do?

I am giving her Normal good quality seeds, with spinach and boiled corn in her diet.

She may or may not want her egg. There is really nothing you can do to force her. How old is she? Is the pair actually bonded or do they just share a cage?

Do not buy an incubator unless you have the skills and time to feed a brand new tiny 3-4 gram baby every single hour for several days, and then every two hours, every three. And so on. And feeding a day 1 chick is nothing like feeding a larger chick, they can aspirate on half a drop.

She needs a lot more greens and other veggies as well as egg food which you can either buy or google recipes for. She should be OFF SEEDS if possible before her eggs hatch because some parents don't break the seeds down far enough for young babies and it can cause major digestive disasters.
