Canary Feeding Program

We feed our canary with oilseeds in cold weather while we feed our canary with non-oilseeds or less-oilseeds. You can reach values of seeds click here. Canaries had better be fit condition which is not weak or fat. Improper weight of canaries cause the breeding and health problems. If a canary is unusually overweght, we can use less-oil foods to reduce weight of canary. Another hand if canary is weak, we can use more oilseeds to increase the weight of canary.

c.       Canary care for canary breeding season

This period starts nearly in March and change according to regional factors. We had better increase protein and E vitamin in canary seeds or water a month ago and we should give to birds its every two days. We can use eggs food  for protein needs and prepared vitamins which sells in shops. If you want to make an egg food in your home, click here for recipe

 

As soon as March start, we use the its every day until birds want to bred. So as soon as the canary lay eggs, we must stop to give the e-vitamin and protein because if canary still want to breed after canary lay eggs , hen canary does not brood on eggs or male canary can disturb to hen canary.

d.      Care for canary brooding

So as soon as the canary lay eggs, we must stop to give the e-vitamin and protein because if canary still want to breed after canary lay eggs , hen canary does not brood on eggs or male canary can disturb to hen canary. So in this period which is 14 days, canaries are not given vegetables by us for 14 days.

 

e.      Feeding program after nestling born

With the first day, we put into cage a apple slice, birds like apple and feed their nestling happily with apple. Stock hen feed to nestling first 3 days with apple and her gizzard milk. So, we had better add probiotic into water container in first day, thus digestive system of nestlings are supported by us.

After three days, Eggs food which we make at home or we buy prepared  from shop we give to birds until nestling eat seeds by itself.
