Post: Canary not sitting on eggs

    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!
    Thank you.
