Well I guess I am really branching out now My husband called me from work to tell me that a guy he works with brought him a gift of 2 young canaries!
The guy breeds them and knows we have other birds so I guess he figured we would be good parents. I am running out of quarantine rooms

I don't know anything about keeping canaries, I guess I will learn fast.
I'll post pictures as soon as I can.

I don't know much about them either, all I really know is that they aren't very fond of human companionship, and prefer to be with their own species.

I would assume their care is similar to keeping finches or budgies.

Can't wait for pictures!

We used to have canaries when I was a kid in the aviary.

I spent some time watching them. They sing beautifully and are nice to watch. I think they're pretty cute, myself.

Isn't it funny how over time many of us have developed Multiple Bird Syndrome?

My second budgie was given to us by a friend (found her and no one claimed her) who knew I was a "bird person".

Congrats on your new gifts. I am also eager to see pictures when you get a chance.

Congratulations on having 2 canaries They are awesome, I used to have canaries and finches They are not so sociable as budgies but they want your attention too they look happier when you talk to them! They have their own food and mine loved lettuce!

Smile Oh

check out Ladygouilianfinch.com. Canaries are in the finch family. They usually enjoy staying in the home cage. and males sing beautifully. They are less of a hand pet and do well in a mixed finch aviary. A breeder can tell you which type of finches go well together. They can be very sensitive to cold breezes and respiratory problems. German roller singer cocks are expensive and in high demand, but oh is the music to die for!!!!. They will respond to their people and tend to be less flock birds than budgies. They have a different beak than budgies, but eat similar foods and like clean gravel/calcisand with a bit of fine charcoal in it. They eat seeds whole and grind them up in the crop. they love egg food. and enjoy a bit of green leaf to nibble. Lady gouldianfinch has a great mineral powder and lots of reference material on canaries. Rapid postal
service and they ship international. Vitamin A and Iodine tend to be issues for healthy caneries. Soluvite D is a great vitamin carried by LadyG. Best wishes,
Jo Ann

Thanks, I'll be sure to check out the info on that website. I raised a sparrow that ran my life for 12 years, she was quite a character and had me trained quite well, that is the extent of my experience with birds in the finch family

Congratulations on your new additions!
I'll be looking forward to hearing all about them and seeing pictures once they've settled into their new environment.
