Are you using an actual incubator? Regular incubators have a temperature control and a place to increase humidity levels. Except for Peregrine eggs, we don't handle eggs at my job. Perhaps you could call a local pet store  who could in turn give you the name of a breeder.

Ah, now I see your question. I'm guessing you have a male or two in the bunch? Is there any reason you can't let the females do the incubating? And do you have plans for any of the chicks that survive? Please do look up information about breeding these birds. I imagine the female will need a slightly different diet when it comes time to feed the babies. In the wild, even the seed eating birds will feed higher protein food to their chicks until they get older and can handle seed.

if they werent laying on them to keep them warm...they may not be fertile?
also were they cold when you found them?  eggs needs a constant warmth...if they were cold they may not hatch...but you'll know in about 21 days...
good luck to you...

She laid a large egg today that had a little bit of blood on it.  Now she acts like she isn't breathing well (open mouth breathing).  Is she stressed out or sick.
