Are you sure they are mating? Is the male and the female
sitting on the eggs? Perhaps you need a different male? If
you get a different singer, it may jumpstart the pair.
One a different note, I couldn't tell you anything much
different then what the books say. If anything, it could be a
lack of nutrition. Eggs, eggfood, cilantro, kale, parsley,
chives and giving them juice from "Bolt House Farms" (in the
refrigerated produce section) called "Vedge" with tomato,
carrot and other juices either in a seperate cup or mixed
with their eggs, is a good idea. The vitamins A and C in the
veggies and the calcium in the eggs (with the shells in) make
a big difference.
My finches like just the juice and drink it by itself, but I
don't know about canaries. If yours do not like Vedge, there
are some sweeter ones with blueberries, raspberries, apple,
ext, which my cocktiels prefer, and they are all fortified
with vitamins. They are pasturised(sp?) because they are
completely natural and have a very short shelf-life, so make
sure you get one with the farthest date from the day you get
