Care and feeding of our Canaries for sale

The bird food in a canary diet consisting of a good seed mixture (vitamin coated) supplemented with sprouted seed, various fruits, green foods, and commercial pellets are generally regarded suitable.

Bird Food:
Fresh food and water must be provided daily.

Canary Seed
Fresh canary seed is their everyday food and vitamin coated seed mixes are readily available at a pet store. A single canary will eat about one teaspoon of seed a day and canaries will rarely overeat, though they may need to eat a bit more when the weather is cold or during their moult.

Pelleted Diet
Pelleted diets are also available and contain vitamins and more protein than seed, making additional supplementation unnecessary. However birds not raised on a pelleted diet may not recognize it as food, so may not accept it.

Fruits and Vegetables
Daily supplements that canaries like to eat include greens such as kale, broccoli, dandelions, spinach, celery, peas, and watercress. Small amounts of fruits such as apples, oranges, grapes, bananas, and melons can also be offered. Canary treats of seed with honey, fruits and vegetables are fun for your bird too, as well as nutritious.

Proteins
About once a week offer an additional protein supplement such as egg biscuit

Canary Song Food
Every few days you can also provide some song food to help develop vocal cords.
Colour food for Canary Color Food:
For red birds it is important to provide a colour food for canaries.

Vitamins
Most canary seed mixes have vitamin coated seeds. However, if their canary seed is not vitamin enriched, vitamins can be added to the drinking water or the food.

Minerals
Provide a cuttlebone or a mineral block. The calcium they provide will give your bird a firm beak, strong eggshells when breeding, and will prevent egg binding. The lime in the cuttlebone also aids in digestion.

Water
A canary cannot live without for a 24 hour period without water! Provide fresh water daily.

Bird Baths
Give your canary a bath at least once a week and daily during the summer by placing a dish on the bottom of the cage. A bath with an enclosure will help to keep the water splashing to a minimum. Bathing is very important to canaries during molting and breeding.

Bird Grooming
Their nails need to be trimmed occasionally, but be careful never to clip into the vein as the bird can quickly bleed to death. Bird nail trimmers and styptic powder to stop the bleeding are available at pet shops.

Housing

Bird Cages:
Canaries like wide open spaces so provide your pet with a roomy canary cage. Also provide dishes for food, water, and treats as well as an area for a bath.

Temperament

Canaries enjoy being around people but do not appreciate heavy handling in the way that budgies and parrots do. Canaries are intelligent birds. Many owners can train their canary to sit on their hand, move to a perch, or direct the bird to fly around the room. Young birds are easier to train, but you can tame and train most canaries with enough patience and consistent practice.

The canary is a relatively solitary bird—it will not get lonely if housed alone in a cage. It can also coexist in an aviary environment with other small birds. They only no-no is housing two male canaries together in a single cage; they will likely fight.
