My Canary Mom Cannot Hatch Her Eggs
by Rose Zhou
I have a male and a female canary.
The mom laid 4 eggs. She stays in nest most time for more than 20 days. Not one egg hatched.
Then a few days later, the mom laid 3 eggs. The mom stayed in her nest again for most of the day for about 14 days. One baby canary hatched and the other 2 eggs never hatch.
After 3 weeks, the mom had 5 more eggs. This time we took 3 eggs to 38oC incubator and left 2 eggs for her mom to sit in her nest.
How should we handle the eggs in the incubator?
Should we turn the eggs everyday like the mom does?
Why is the mom having trouble getting her eggs to hatch? (The food we feed her is healthy & the temperature is around 75 degrees)
If you have any advice, please share it with us. We appreciate it. Cheers!
