i need help with my canaries, i own an orange female and a yellow male, the male is 2 years old, while the female is 1.5 year old.
they have 2 large cages, 1 per each.
a month ago the female started to show signs of breeding, 3 weeks ago she started to try and pick up the paper from the cage bottom.
i didn't do anything about it unfortunately..
2 weeks ago when i was on vacation i decided to put the together and let my sister handle them for a week.
she took a photo of the 2 eggs laying in the nest, but i did not leave any nesting wires, were just sitting there /:
at sunday she bought it and the female started to build the nest right away,
1 day after on of the eggs was gone, only shells.
when i got back home, 5 days ago, i seperated the male again fearing he was the one who broke the egg.
my questions are;
do i need to get the male back in the cage with her?
is it possible to have more eggs if i do?
have i done something wrong except leaving her without the nesting wires?
help will be appreciated, Eitan.
