Seasons started

Recommended Posts

My siskins have picked up where they left off last year. Canaries are nearly all on eggs, goldies are messing with material and one pair of redpolls have started to build a bit too.

 How's everyone else getting on with their birds?

This is my first pair and they were brilliant parents last year, 15 chicks they reared so I'm hoping they rear the same this year. I've heard of loads of problems like the cock pecking eggs and stuff but he's great and pumps the chicks full of food. I had a couple of surprise colours too in the chicks.

Siskins and canaries have hatched yesterday. Just redpolls and goldies that need to stop messing around now.

Nice one mate. If I were you I'd get a couple of double breeders and some proper nest pans for them though and watch the hen now as she'll be wanting to nest again and might pluck the first chicks for nesting material. Good luck with the rest of your season.
