Yes. The most common pattern is for the male to sit in the daytime and the female to sit at night. If he won't share at all, you can take him out of the cage sometimes so she can have her turn.

Yes, One of my male's take's more care then the female, but doesn't stop the female from looking after them

Good luck

As I type this, my female is sitting on top of the cage eating part of a strawberry and some broccoli, while my male is sitting on the eggs and grinding his beak.

They take turns, and when they aren't taking turns, they're both in there sitting on them. lol

Anytime I go out to check on the birds and/or eggs, its always the females who are sitting on the eggs. Ive yet to see the male doing their bit!!!
