link says 20 to 25 days. I would say wait 32 days and check. if they are still eggs, then you might just toss them, if you have any questions, Id call a vet. be patient, good things come to those who wait.

(me): I love you.
(kitty): hhhm? -turns to clean a paw-
(me):do you love me?
(kitty): -blank stare and slow blink-

Re: Red Rump HELP PLEASE !!!!

Is it the first time they've mated? Have you candled the eggs to see if they're fertile? You can google search to see how to candle eggs to check for fertility. Sometimes they may not be fertile even though they've mated, especially the first time. Or sometimes one of the pair may not be fertile period. How old is the pair? The hatching time varies depending on many different factors, humidity, the way they incubated the eggs, etc. It is preferred the pair being at least a year old before attempting to mate. Have you provided them with extra calcium? Such as cuttle bone, oyster shells, mineral blocks, etc. IF the eggs are infertile, let her sit until she decided to stop then remove the eggs and the nest box all together and try again in another 3-4 months. Don't keep the nest box on because they will just keep on laying, it's harsh for the females' body to kept on laying eggs, it can kill her!!!
