Default Breeding Harris's

My female who is currently sitting on three eggs and doing a great job of incubating, spends about an hour or two every day just sitting on the eggs and squawking her head off lol, I've never come across this before and just wondered if anyone else had. Her appetite is fine and she seems in perfect health otherwise but I'm just curious about this, not sure if she's just trying to get the male to do his bit cos to be honest he doesn't do a lot after copulation lol.

Cheers Shaun, not many buzzards about here but nice to know it's normal behaviour, I only asked as my last breeding female never made a sound, but no two alike I suppose. Cheers. John

Hi Davey, my Harris's have always bred around this time depending on the weather, but there isn't really a set breeding season for Harris's, by that I mean they'll breed any time of the year if you let them. Anyway how you doing mate. John

Be aware she is likely to be very aggressive if you disturb her and id suggest stripped food only before the hatch and for a few weeks after if its her first clutch ,dont feed fluffy day olds
