    Canary and finch

    Hello! I've been wanting to get me a little bird for a while and I'm really interested in canaries and finches (zebras specifically). I was wondering if I can get a female canary and a female finch in the same cage or if it would be bad for the canary? I've read that canaries don't mind being...

    Bimini and Me

    Hi! I'm Alec, a first time bird owner. I've owned animals all my life: cats, dogs, fish, and a few hermit crabs. I've always enjoyed the company of animals. Yesterday, I met Bimini the canary. She was alone in a PetSmart when I met her, so I'm giving her time to adjust and relax. I hope I can...

    We adopted a little canary that fell on my grandpas store back in January, but ever since the things have gone downhill. At first, during his first week, he had a few barely noticeable symptoms that there was something wrong, very small tail bobbing, sometimes he would open his beak to...

    Need Help-Mite?

    Baby canaries have red spots on their backs. Also, the mother had red spots on her feathers because she was sitting in the hatch. What could be the problem with baby canaries? Do you have an idea? Thanks

    Pictures Canary with stool stuck

    As the title suggests, I've had 2 canaries (M/F) who's been in my care for a year. Sadly one of them passed some time ago (M) and as a result of this I've been even more paranoid and cautious with my other canary (F). I've noticed that her stool has gotten stuck around her anus and some of the...

    This afternoon a neighbor gave my mom a white canary he found at his door, thinking it was hers(it wasn’t). She took it inside and it’s currently staying in my room uncaged. My mom wants to keep it saying she’ll buy a cage and everything for it tomorrow. The bird has no leg band but doesn’t...

    Hello! We have 3 birds: Holmes (Zebra Finch) and Maus (Society Finch) and Lucca (male Canary). Holmes was best friends with his buddy, Watson, who sadly passed last year.

    Male canary plucking obsessively. Help needed!

    Hi bird folks, Last week I discovered that my male canary, 3 yo., plucked bald a big area around his tail and lower back. I'm shocked since he's a very active bird, sings every day and chirps a lot, has a large (relatively to his size) cage, and doesn't seem bored. It was difficult to notice...

    Hello everyone! I’ve settled on getting a pair of fife canaries, so now I need to learn about their diet. To anyone who has canaries or is knowledge about them, what should their diet look like? I’d greatly appreciate any specific brands of seeds and whatnot as well. Thank you!

    Finches vs. Canaries

    Hello everyone. Currently, I'm choosing between some finches or canaries. I've heard good things about both, but I was wondering what you guys thought. I'd prefer a bird that was on the larger side and it would be great if they were known for getting along with other birds. Also, I'd love to...

    Canary making weird sounds

    I have a question regarding my male canary. When I get close to the cage of my canary he gets a little nervous and starts making squeaking sounds followed by clicking sounds.

    Broken blood feather on canary

    Hello. Today I saw my canary bleeding, figured out it's a broken blood feather somewhere on his wing section. I looked for the blood feather but I can't find it. I think the canary plucked it by itself. Just to be safe I applied semolina (since I don't have cornstarch) to prevent bleeding. In my...
