Post: Canary not sitting on eggs
Posted by CDB on 12/06/06
Good morning! I need some advice/input, please. I have a
young yellow female canary and introduced a red factor
male approximately 2 1/2 weeks ago. The female created a
nest and laid 3 eggs on successive days, starting 5 days
ago; and was sitting on the eggs. Then on the 4th day, she
was not sitting on the eggs, and it looked as if the male
was trying to mate with her again. I seperated them. The
female has just laid a 4th egg (day 5) in another place
in her cage (not in the nest with the 3 eggs) and still is
not sitting on any of the eggs. What do you think?
Obviously, I am a novice and was not prepared for this!
