Thanks guys. Second egg was laid on Friday and still lots of copulation so hoping for a third egg today at some point although I would be more than happy with two fertile eggs lol. Not counting my Redtails before they hatch but I plan on keeping a youngster back to fly myself and want to bring a bird over from Canada to pair with it in a few years if possible.

The first week of copulation I don't think they were really making contact, I think it was a bit of practice as they are both first timers but the second week looked more promising and the first egg followed shortly after

Oops, I spoke too soon. I've just reviewed the CCTV and a 4th egg was laid this morning at 11am
