It depends on the bird some will even if the chick is right under them they will not help if it is not in the nest but as soon as it is back in they will care for it.

They may flutter around them for a while but there is really not much they can do to put them back in the nest so they do abandon them. In some cases where there are 2 or 3 eggs that hatch, one of the chicks will push the others out so that they have a better chance of survival.
