Post author By Jane Post date 14/03/2011 The 5 nests all have been claimed by canary hens, each nest now has 4 or 5 eggs in them. I have just put a final nest in, as one of the older females missed out on a nest, she is now fussing round the 6th nest, but has not laid an egg yet. ← Red Velvet Sponge. → Carpenter Bee.
