The canary is one of the prettiest birds that we place in an aviary. We usually will place a pair of canaries, but often
the male will not sing with a female. Because of this, on occasion we will only place a male. The average life span of
a canary is 10 years.
HOW TO TELL MALE FROM FEMALE:
Canaries are hard to sex. It is sometimes easy to distinguish the male from the singing. The male canaries are
Canary Islands off the coast of Africa.
WHEN IS THE BIRD IN COLOR:
Canaries are in color all of the time.
Most canaries do not breed in the aviary. This is because it is difficult to sex them, so getting a male and female are
often by luck. However, some aviaries will receive a pair that will be great breeders. Canaries require an open nest
for breeding and nesting. Incubation period for a canary will last 14 days and the fledgling occurs about 14 days later.
The canary eats seeds and greens and requires egg food through the breeding period.
