Sometimes the males aren’t as attentive during the incubation phase as they are during the courting & nestbuilding stages, but then step up to the plate again once the eggs hatch. Mom CAN care for those babies herself, but if the male is acting more like a “Baby Daddy” than a real father, then you could help her out by feeding mealworms. She’ll appreciate it.
