John called me to the canary cage, yesterday evening, Keynes appeared in distress, and she did seem to be having some difficulty. We had invited our visitors for a glass of wine and they were due to arrive imminently, aware of this; we put Keynes in a single cage and brought her into the house. She settled and this morning she is eating and chirping, ready to go back into the main cage. What was wrong is a bit of a mystery, I put it down to hormones.
UPDATE! Just checked and she has laid an egg in her food tray, maybe it was an uncomfortable delivery. She’s back in the main cage sitting in her nest on that new egg.
