The Griffon Vulture egg was taken in the Green Balkans Wildlife Rescue Center incubator

07.01.2021
The Griffon Vulture egg was taken in the Green Balkans Wildlife Rescue Center incubator after it was initially incubated in its parents’ nest for 14 days.

The reason of taking the egg away is to stimulate the vultures to lay another egg because from our practice, it often turns out that the first egg is infertile. We will still give a chance to the first egg to hatch, in case it is fertile, by placing it in an incubator and constantly monitoring the process.

We are hoping that the Griffon Vulture pair will continue the breeding season and lay another egg.
