Yes-dummy egg is placed in nest anytime an egg is removed (even during candling). Parents don’t leave, remain focused on incubating the egg. Once chick has hatched, it’s put back in the nest, usually later in the day to avoid exposure to flies (which are more active during day)

They also use deterrents around the nest, but hatching in an incubator completely eliminates the acute threat immediately following hatch.

Rangers will be checking the egg for pipping around 26 Jan. When egg has pip, it will be placed in incubator till hatch to prevent flystrike (flies lay eggs in the umbilicus of hatchling, which can be fatal) then returned to nest post-hatch. Learn more at
