So for my 22nd birthday in October I got 2 beautiful little canaries. They were selected from an aviary with 20 or so canaries in it. So no intentions of getting a breeding pair. We chose them simply because they were pretty!
Imagine my surprise when a few weeks later, Snickers is frantically shredding branches and what not and building flimsy nests all over the cage. So we bought the poor girl a nest and some nesting material and let her go nuts. Sure enough she built herself a nest and started laying eggs. We never thought anything would come of it.
We were wrong.
Here we are 2 weeks later and we have 3 tiny, adorably ugly baby canaries!
