Our canary and finch …

Posted on Updated on

Our household consists of three cats and 15 birds… 3 canaries and 12 finch… The birds live in one big cage, as u can see from the image below they pretty much live in harmony…Below u see a picture of one enclosed nest that is monopolized by finch.. No joke… there must be a good 10 eggs in there… quite frankly the male must be shooting blanks because nothing is happening…duds… Nothing but duds. The other open nest shows finch and canary eggs… It was so nice to see how for a good week both the finch and canary were sharing duties in sitting on the eggs… I thought ‘wow, what great team work!’ … That lasted for about a week… The nest is now empty… Why? U might ask.. Well, they actually sabotaged each others eggs… Pecking and breaking them!!! So much for birdly love!!
Our finch have actually been successful in the past breeding but recently have been in a bit of a dry spell… I would really love to see the canary do the same but not if the finch will attack the eggs as they did… Gonna have to figure something out… Trying to remove the canary from this huge nest will take some doing.
