Fife fancy canary is very lively,sweet and a great choice for the beginner. This delightful little bird is quite hardy and very easy to keep.They are not prone to disease, come in all the canary colors, and the male has a wonderful pleasant song. They are also ready breeders and most often good at rearing their young.
The Fife Fancy Canary is a “type canary”, bred for physical characteristics rather than color or song. With the emphasis on developing the Border into a larger bird, dedicated Scots devoted their efforts to bringing back the original standard of the Border. Thus the Fife Fancy Canary came into being, capturing the hearts of people around the world.
Care and feeding of Fife fancy canary
Canaries like wide open spaces so provide a roomy cage. Provide a cage with vertical bars and small perches of different size for foot exercise. Have at least 1 perch set high in the cage for the canary to roost (sleep). The cage should be placed high, so the canary can look down on us so to speak.
Canaries eat mainly canary seed and rape seed. Vitamin coated canary seed mixes are readily available at a pet store. Greens are also enjoyed and can be offered daily along with a little calcium in the form of a cuttlebone.
They do like to bath, so should be offered a bird bath. Cage cleaning and toe nail trimming is about all the maintenance canaries need.
They are good natured social creatures that do well when kept in cages or in aviaries. They are timid birds though and should not be housed with parakeets, lovebirds, or other hook bills that tend to be more aggressive birds by nature.
Male canaries should be kept in a cage by themselves to ensure quality singing. Males can be territorial and pairing up with two male canaries in a cage can cause fights. In a spacious aviary canaries can generally be housed with other canaries, finches, and other hardbills.
Are Fife canaries good pets
A Fife canary makes an excellent pet and is well-liked by its owners. They are little birds that may be kept in cages and are amiable. They do, however, require a lot of area to fly around, so get a large cage or aviary. Another reason people keep this bird as a pet is because of its amazing singing ability. They’re easy to handle and don’t get sick very often.
You may also take them to bird exhibitions because they are really attractive and may help you and them win. Because they can be trained inside cabinets, breeders that take them to shows prefer to keep them in cabinets rather than in the wild. You can also let them out of the cage to perch after training. You can also take a photograph of them perched on your shoulder and share it to your friends and family.
Thanking Mrs. Mika for this Rich Selection of these canaries parrots I’m welcoming two new beauties into my lifs
“The Parrot Shop is the only reliable place to find a new feathered friend! I recently bought a Canaries parrot from them and he is a precious little gift in my son’s life. Gaspy is a healthy and vibrant, hilarious clown and I am grateful to have found people who understand birds. I would recommend their birds to anyone interested in parrots as pets; I feel even more confident knowing I can contact them at any time if I have questions. My son is now so happy since I got it for his birthday “
