What is the earliest age at which baby canaries can be given to a new owner?
This year two hens began laying second-nest eggs extremely early -- in the first nest and, in one case, with two of the first-nest chicks not yet fledged. The first of these eggs was broken, so I removed the eggs each day and stored them, but both hens finished with an unprecedented (in my birdroom) six eggs each. Usually they lay 4-5 eggs/nest. One chick was still not fledged, but I had to return the eggs to the nests and move the fledged chicks and males to other cages. The males are now feeding the first-nest chicks, the last chick has fledged and is still being fed by the setting hen. Because of this timing by the hens, I will not be able to keep all the chicks the usual four months-- I have neither the space nor the extra cages. So I want to find them homes earlier than four months. What do you all suggest?
And, any idea why my hens were in such a hurry this season?
