You haven't said what kind of birds you have but you should leave the male in the cage, a lot of species actually help with raising the babies, after that you should introduce a nest box of the appropiate size in the cage and then leave them alone. You may have to throw the first egg out. Depending on the kind of bird they can lay up to 6 eggs, sometimes more and can take up to 28 days to hatch. If you are looking to have babies I would further research.

I know nothing but if no one comes to your aid, you should go online and google - bird eggs and type of bird. Seems there should be a warm nest .

Good luck!
