She sits most of the time, taking a few outings per day, but she will sit on the nest all night. A lot depends on the weather, so during cooler days she will say on the nest longer. But she does take time out a few times per day. Incubation period is approximately 14 days. Papa blue will also feed her some times when she is incubating.
Or 12. Mine hatch on day 12 or 13 depending on if I count from the day the last egg is laid or the next day. Officially it’s 12 – 14 days and there are some situations where it’s even been longer. Sometimes they postpone incubating a few days if the weather is too cold.
