Once the female is finished laying a set of eggs, she settles into the nest and doesn’t leave until they hatch. It’s called “sitting tight.” The incubation period is 12 to 14 days.
The incubation period increases as the bird species becomes larger. Unlike mammals, which give birth to live young, all of a bird’s young development occurs within the egg.
