Default Budgie isn’t incubating as she should

Hello, my Name is Ana, My Budgie Named Jaydi & has laid 4 eggs, but she incubates them & she comes out the nest for maybe 10mins at a time and goes back in & incubates again, I have a incubator and I’m thinking about placing the eggs in the incubator. I know for a fact that 2 are infertile and 2 are fertile, So can I leave the 2 infertile in the nest with her so she thinks she’s incubating while I place the fertile eggs in the incubator? I was not planning on this she just happened to lay her first egg and I catch her and my boy Sky mating but it was too late. And also, if so, At what temperature should the incubator be Set at?

Welcome!

The best thing to do as a new member is read all of the sticky articles in each forum section. (They can be found at the top of the page, if you're using the mobile site there will be a little yellow icon on the top right you can click to access them)

Because you have a mating pair make sure you read all the stickies in the breeding section, there is much important information there about the best breeding practices.

Have the eggs hatched or were they just laid? If they were just laid remove them from the cage and throw them away and separate the pair to avoid further breeding.

If they have been incubating or are already hatched:

Have you removed the pair from the aviary? Do they have a nestbox with a concave bottom to avoid splayed legs? What are the breeding pair being fed?

I would not recommend removing the eggs into an incubator.
You've indicated that two of the eggs are fertile so I'm assuming you've candled them.
My suggestion is that you allow Jaydi to take care her eggs and hope she's ready to actually be a mother. Hens do leave the nestbox initially to eat. After a few days, the male should be feeding her. How many days has Jaydi been incubating the eggs so far?

The purposes of this forum is to promote the best practices for the health and well-being of budgies.
Please read the thread below and then respond to the questions following that link:

Guidance regarding Breeding Advice Threads

https://www.talkbudgies.com/budgie-br...s-dangers.html

How old are your budgies?
How long have you had them
Are you certain the two that mated are not related?
Have you moved the "breeding pair" into an individual breeding cage with a proper nestbox with a concave bottom?
How much time have you spent researching best practices in breeding?
What diet are you feeding these budgies?
Do you have a third cage ready and waiting for the hen to be moved into when the potential chicks reach 3 1/2 weeks of age.
What are the genders of the remaining birds in the flight cage?

Please refer to the threads below and keep in mind you will need to remove the hen from the cage into an individual cage of her own when the chicks reach 3 1/2 weeks of age to prevent her from double-clutching. At that time, the male will take over feeding the chicks until they are fully weaned.

If you care to learn more, then take the advice to heart and stick around . Talk Budgies has a lot to offer to those who want to do the best for their budgies!
