The Blue tits breeds from April to July and can have one to two clutches of 5 to 12 eggs, usually flecked with rufous. Incubation lasts 13 to 16 days.
This is one of the birds that often use nesting boxes. She builds a rather loose bowl-shaped nest made of grasses, feathers and moss. It is possible that Blue Tits adopt nesting boxes because the best nesting sites are occupied by dominant Great Tits. Only the female broods but the male feeds her during this period.
Both parents take care of the feeding of the young. The daily feeding frequency is between 264 and 573 feedings per day. The chicks leave the nest after 18 days and fledge after 4 weeks.
