    I need help robins layed eggs on my porch I have questions

    So I just found a Robin nest with 3 little eggs on my light on my back porch .I have 2 dogs that get tied up there will they stop the Robin from coming back ? Should I find a different spot for my pups? I'm not sure what to do I don't want these baby birds to be effected or not cared for because of them?

    Quite honestly, I would remove the dogs to another area, because the Robin hen may abandon her eggs due to fear of the dogs. Then the eggs will not hatch. The hens do often choose a unique spot to lay eggs. My cousin has had various wild bird species lay eggs in an artificial wreath hanging on her front door. This is my opinion, and as I always post, it is up to you to make the final decision.

    Thank you for your help I will move them ASAP I woke up this morning and she had layed another now there are 4 eggs in total and the hen and male keep looking in my windows to see if the dogs are at the door so it's probably best I do move them

    I am happy you moved the dogs away so the robins can be safe to raise their babies. I too would love to see the updates of these babies.

    I never seen Robin eggs before. They are beautiful! That nest is impressive too. I love being able to watch a nest from its beginnings until they fly away and I hope your new family of birds are safe and grow up happy and healthy.
