The season has started weird for me, it was looking like the goldies were more forward than the canaries but then they seemed to go quiet again. I've bred mules before I got any young canaries though and the goldfinch pairs still haven't started. Hopefully they'll get their act together by the end of the month.

Same here bred 4 at the moment these two jumped the nest. Two nice chevs. Got two nests with 4 & 5 eggs both nests only 1 fertile egg. Was going to bin them but one of my pals said see what happens but it's a f**k about 1 chick.

I would be putting both chicks in 1 nest and let the pair go again so they aren’t feeding 1 each.

They're fine. Just jumped the nest and never used their feet to perch or walk on wire floors so legs like bambi at first.

2 of 5 that jumped yesterday. 

I've got another fee in nests now and just set 4 more hens off on their eggs so should get a few more in a couple of weeks.
