Once the eggs are laid, the female bird sits on them to keep them warm with her body. This process is called incubation. The eggs need to be kept warm for about 12–21 days, depending on the species of bird.

After the incubation period is over, the eggs hatch and the chick comes out. This process of breaking the egg is called hatching.

Once the chicks hatch, the adult birds feed them and care for them. After about 6–10 weeks, the chicks are fully grown, they will then leave their parents and start their own lives.
