Partridge

My dad found  eggs in the garden we think they are Partridge , we are unsure on the age of the eggs. We saw some partridges at lunchtime. what should we do

  • we think they are, should we just monitor the nest
  • how would we know if they are being looked after, there are 7 eggs there but they have be scattered over the place
  • We have woken this morning to see a pair of red legged partridge in our small back garden near Barnsley in South Yorkshire. We do not know if there is a nearby nest or not but are going to put out feed to encourage them to stay. They have been right up to the back door (proved by large amounts of droppings!) Is there anything specific we should be doing for them?
