    Males or male and female?

    Hi, we got these 2 canaries last year in May (2020) and we were told that they are 3-4 months and that they are a male and a female. So we named them Mira (female) - the brown one and a bit smaller and Seb (male) - the yellow one. They are a bit older than a year now and we still cannot tell if...

    Should I take Dummy Eggs Away?

    Forgive me if this is in the wrong thread! I did see the dummy eggs master post but I didn't think I could find anything that currently fits my situation. Earlier this season my canary hen was laying eggs like crazy. Definitely too many. I got some dummy eggs as quickly as I could that have...

    Parakeets and canaries?

    Hi! I've had a pet canary for a few years now. When the weather's nice, we let his cage out in our garden. Usually, a lot of birds flock nearby because my lil baby canary is a very messy eater, but today I came home and found a blue parakeet latching on to his cage for dear life. It was...

    Can cockatiels get diseases from canaries?

    Yesterday my little canary sadly died, we found him with an open beak laying on the floor. Since we live in a really poor region of our country with no avian vets whatsoever and are not sure what it is, could the male cockatiel be dieased as well? They were always separated half a meter.

    Feeding canaries eggs

    My canaries haven't been fed egg from their previous owner and im trying to get them into the habit of eating 1 egg a week but the problem is they aren't eating from it, and I expected that because they haven't tried it before, but since they don't eat the egg because it doesn't look like food...

    Strange behavior (female canary)

    Hi. I am in despair. About three month ago I got a female canary. At first the bird was curious about everything and friendly. Usually she was sitting on or near me while I was sleeping, playing with paper, ropes, exploring shelves. And she was often sitting on shoulders or head. She still does...

    Hi Everyone! Recently I've posting about my canary a bit as she's acting a little strange. Lately she's been sitting in her food dish quietly all day, eating and drinking as usual, and maintaining activity when provoked but otherwise just resting flat in her food dish (which made me think she...

    Hi everyone! Since bringing home my canaries a few weeks ago, I've been feeding them the seed mix they'd been eating where I adopted them from. I didn't want to introduce too many new things at once. However, about a week ago I started mixing canary pellets in with their food. They haven't even...

    My canary is sitting in his food bowl all day. Is this normal?

    My male canary has been consistently sitting in his food bowl for the past 2 weeks. He is still eating and drinking but hasn’t been singing at all, yet he used to sing constantly. Is this normal behaviour? Could he be moulting? We’re unsure what to do. Any help is appreciated :)
