The canary chicks no longer use the nest at all. I cleaned the nest out today and provided new nesting material, and now Momma is happily working on lining a new nest. Tonight there is one chick sleeping on the swing, one sleeping on a perch. and the youngest is sleeping in the seed bowl and twittering to himself. Daddy is exhausted from running all over the cage feeding three demanding chicks. There is a buffet of food appropriate for a baby bird, and they watch with great interest as their parents eat, but the chicks don't quite get the idea of feeding themselves.
