Question: What is the reason when a canary pair eating their eggs after the female laid the 3rd egg and can I prevent this habit?


C1:  The main reason can be a lack of calcium or protein. C2: To avoid that canaries eat their eggs administer enough eggfood, cuttlebone and also calcium- or mineralblocks. C3: I recommend to switch the real eggs daily for dummy eggs and after the third or fourth day back for the real ones. This ever helped for a female that broke her eggs in it first round. C4:  When in the next time an egg is broken, put a bit of mustard in it, that will stop to eat the eggs. C5: Maybe the male crack the eggs. At first remove the eggs for dummy eggs and then remove the male when you move the real eggs back in the nest.
