This image, shows the nest with 4 eggs. The canary hen who made the nest and laid the eggs sits on them vigilantly. Why Salty? – you may ask, I must have been in a culinary mood, or hungry, because the brood of three chicks she is from, are called Salty, Pepper and Spice. Although the eggs were laid one a day, they should hatch, if fertilised, around about 5th March.
