He is with his eggs, laid yesterday, I have a suspicion that he's been eating some of the eggs. When I looked at him this afternoon when I got home, he looks bloated and there is potentially eggs missing, its hard to tell because it was a small clutch anyway.
Can I take him out before they've hatched and just hope that i dont lose too many? Do I feed him? Please help!!
I'll get pictures soon, top view only because I can't get side at the moment.

I would really request more bright pics, and a possible side, but he looks really thin in this picture. I can help more if I can get more pics. Maybe some before pics to.
