    My Canaries layed 5 eggs. I didn't really mark down a date but they should hatch soon. They take 14 days to hatch. I'm going to try to handtame. I have all the time in the world to tame them so I'm just awaiting the hatch!

    How cool, good luck! Is it difficult to handtame/feed canaries? I fed a baby sun conure once, but never heard of anyone with hand tame canaries at any of the bird shows I attended.

    Beautiful eggs! First time I have seen canary eggs.

    I used to have a red factor canary but he died.

  7. Nice! I want some finches, they are so tiny and sweet. Bought a cage for $6 at a yard sale, found them on Craigslist within a 45 min. drive from me, for $3 EACH if I buy more than 3, and I would like 4 . . .but cannot get the email to go through. I wish CL had a different contact system.

    So neat! You will have to continue to post updated pictures. I got a parakeet for Mother's day. I am just loving the little house birds!
