    Canary Birds Care Guide

    Canary birds are well-known for having a sweet song and their stunning colours. The canary bird is a very popular pet bird choice because of this. However, they do require a certain amount of care in order to be healthy and happy in their canary cages. If you are considering a canary for sale, see the following tips on caring for this bird breed properly.

     

    • Suitably sized canary cages need to be bought so that the pet bird is comfortable and has lots of room to move about in. Bar spacing should be minimal so that the bird cannot squeeze through them. Generally, with canary cages the larger in size, the better.

     

    • The bottom of the cage should be covered with corn cob which is cleaned easily. Place canary cages out of drafts and direct sunlight. Include dishes for water and food inside the cage.

     

    • You will also need some perches in the cage that must be placed so that droppings from the bird cannot fall into the dishes. Toys should also be given to the canary bird to keep him entertained. Swings are ideal for this sort of pet bird.

     

    • Canary birds should be taken to the vet for nail trimming and checkups once a year.
