The female yellow cardinal usually lays two to four eggs 3 5and incubates them for approximately two weeks before the chicks hatch 5. The eggs are of a whitish to blue-green colour with black streaks and freckles 3. During the first week, yellow cardinal chicks grow very fast and when they are just 13 to 14 days old they start to leave the nest to perch on the surrounding branches.
When this species is bred in captivity, both adults contribute to feeding the young, but the female spends more time keeping the nest warm while the male brings greater amounts of food.
