The Hays female tends to lay eggs in clutches of three, and eggs are laid approximately 72 hours apart.

An adult bald eagle will continue to stay on the nest constantly to incubate the egg.

Adult eagles will take turns on the nest, never leaving it unattended.

Hays eggs typically hatch about 35 days after being laid.
