5 eggs and counting

Mon took a little food and water break and we can see she’s up to 5 eggs now. What percent of the time do viable eggs need to be kept warm? I still think these are not fertilized though. doug

  1. Doug, Five eggs must be some kind of record. We kept canaries for years and never had any of the females lay more than 2 to sit on and hatch. Is Mon sitting on all 5 to be hatched? You might be surprised what goes on while you are sleeping. ‘dave

    Mon is sitting on them most of the day. She is out of the cage to play a little now. But yes, she is somehow sitting on all 5 almost the entire day.Dennis told me that the fertilization can take as little as 3 seconds!doug

    If the eggs are not fertilized Mon will be disappointed. You will have to cheer her up
