    Canary Diet

    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. I can hear him sneezing, too. I noticed that a few months ago and treated him for airsac mites. He sings, but not at this...

    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...

    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.

    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...
