1. How to Raise Baby Canaries
Raising healthy baby canaries begins with proper care and feeding of the breeding parents and their chicks, along with the knowledge that “letting nature take its course” is usually the best way to go. The parents of these cage birds do most of the raising by themselves, which makes caring for canary chicks much easier than most other pet bird chicks that need to be hand-raised in order to teach them to accept human handling.

3. Weaning Canaries – Encouraging Fledglings to Accept the Adult Diet
Home | General Bird Care | Baby Birds | Weaning Canaries – Encouraging Fledglings to Accept the Adult Diet
Whether they are hand or parent-reared, young Canaries usually need some encouragement to switch from the nestling to adult diet. This change-over period can be quite stressful, but there are a number of steps you can take to ease the transition.
The Transition Period
Pet Canaries feed their chicks largely upon sprouts, soaked seeds and Egg Food or hard boiled eggs. Once the young fledge, which usually occurs at age 16-20 days, they will be fed by their parents for an additional 2 -3 weeks. During this time, they will also begin to pick at food and eventually learn to eat on their own. Fledglings benefit from watching their parents and siblings…chicks that are hand-reared are at a disadvantage in this respect, but will also respond to the ideas and foods mentioned below.

4. CANARY BREEDING FOR BEGINNERS!
STARTING A CANARY FAMILY
Canaries are not social by nature. Outside of the breeding season, canaries should always be kept apart. Male canaries fight with each other, sometimes with fatal results. He might also kill the female, if she is not ready to breed. Several canaries may be kept, in separate cages, in the same room. This sort of arrangement will encourage the males to sing, but is not necessary for the bird’s health or well being.
When not breeding, it is not always easy to tell the male canary from the female. Only the male sings and only the female will build a nest. During the Summer and early Fall, it takes a well informed canary fancier to detect the gender of a bird hatched that year. When shopping for a hen, go to a store that will guarantee the bird – allow a replacement if the wrong gender is supplied.
Canary hens are generally in good supply from mid-summer until early autumn. With nesting finished for the year, fanciers sell off their excess birds. They are not easy to obtain at other times of the year. Plan to purchase the female at the earliest opportunity. This will give the bird a chance to adjust to her new home. Very rarely are productive hens sold during the breeding season. Female canaries that are put up for sale then are most often either past their prime or are poor mothers.

Canary Bird Care for All Types of Canaries
They are active, cheerful, beautiful, and have a delightfully lovely song! With such a busy world today, pet canaries can make an ideal companion for many people. Canary pet birds are colorful and have pleasing personalities. There is nothing like a peaceful, pretty canary song to unravel nerves at the end of the day.
Most types of canaries can sing, though they may not sing all the time. A canary singing is entertaining in itself but they have some other very desirable traits as well. Adding a pet canary to your home doesn’t add an unwelcome burden. They are small, so keeping canaries takes up very little space. They are also less costly to purchase than many of the larger parrots and some of the other soft billed birds.

6. Color feeding canaries by Fred Wright
Color-feeding is a difficult concept to fully understand. It used to be much more difficult to color-feed than it is now and it’s comparatively easy these days due to modern products.
Some canary varieties need to be color-fed when they are shown, so if you keep Yorkshires, Norwich and Colored canaries – there is no escaping! Most fanciers color-feed their Mules and Hybrids for the shows too. If you want to show them, they have to be color-fed!
So, what is this colour-feeding all about?
We need to get this “color-concentrate” into the birds before they molt, and then when the new feathers grow, they come through with the color of the concentrate. The concentrate is added to the food or the drinking water and gets into the bird’s system. In fact it’s taken or absorbed into the blood of the bird and as the new feathers grow, which are actually fed by the blood, they pick up the color.
