First time parents don't always get it right. Half the time, you get no babies from a first time pair. The infertile eggs will be provide warmth and something for the baby to lean on when it hatches.

Are you sure that these eggs are infertile, or is it possible that they were recently laid and haven't developed enough yet to show signs of fertility? Leave them in there for a while longer to see what happens!

They may still be fertile, as already mentioned, you have to remember that the eggs are all different ages so they may not have developed yet. But if there is only one out of 4 eggs fertile it's probably because they are first-time breeders. That's pretty common, sometimes it takes a few clutches for them to get it right. Just leave them in there and candle them again in another 4-5 days.

Yes I have left the eggs as they were. I Wil let them incubate it as long as they want lol... Moreover, I have learned alot on justcockteils.net about egg candling so I can make some good guess lol

Okay guys i candled the eggs again and it's confirm now that only 1 egg is fertile infact i could see beating heart this time. Approximately hatch date is from 18 - 21 as its cold weather here.

Female was outside to eat and drink and male was inside, i knocked the door put thr flash light inside but he was not getting out so i just opened the box and took the eggs infront of him on which he started to make an alarming sound on which i was so hurt that i was about to cry. It took me 3 min approximately but i am feeling very guilty 😫😫😫😥😥😥 ... Though he is sitting on eggs again but i want to cry as i hurted him so much... He is a very good dad and I believe he will raise a proud son

You didn't hurt him at all. That's a warning sound, he was trying to scare you away. You did absolutely nothing wrong.

If the birds are outdoors and it's cold, it's possible that the other eggs were fertile, but the clutch got chilled and only one egg survived. If the sitting parent (usually the hen) has a night fright and leaves the nest, she won't go back in until there's enough light for her to see that it's safe inside. The eggs will cool off in the meantime.

They are inside. I do turn off the light at night. Moreover, if hen is not inside male is tight incubator as well. I believe they got chilled out because bedding was removed by them underneath it.

The eggs will usually stay warm enough even without bedding if the parents are sitting tight and the air temperature is not cold. But if the parents got scared off the nest during the night, the eggs will chill faster without bedding than they would with bedding.
