House sparrows will breed in any month of the year but are most commonly breeding from March to August. Breeding will occur when a flock has established a nesting site and the male has established that the site is secure. Females will lay 4 or 5 eggs at one times with an incubation period of 10 to 14 days.
Once the egg has hatched, young chicks will stay in the nest for 15 days before they leave to start their own nest. Some chicks still rely on their parents to provide them food for another two weeks after leaving the nest.| Back |
