 Shape canary Bird

Canary is 12-14 cm long, thinner than the sparrow but thinner than the sparrow. Calls are not beautiful, the artificial cultivation of the emergence of yellow, white, green, orange, bronze and other feather color, call also better than the original species.
Just out of the nest of canary birds, both sex and practice the same, from the appearance of difficult to identify male and female. However, after 2-3 months, the male anal projection from (cloaca projection) is tapered, and the female is relatively flat, was bread shape. Identification of the birds by hand to catch, blowing around the anus can see the feathers.

In addition, the young canary was born 35 to 45 days began to sing, then from their song gestures can distinguish between male and female. Chanting when the throat bulging, fluctuation, the sound is continuous male. ‘Canary bird’ into the male and female identification easier, because the male song sounds melodious sounds, the bird’s song monotonous.


Wild canary mainly eat plant seeds, eat insects in summer. Camp cup-shaped nest, 4-5 eggs per litter, every year from January to July breeding, incubation mainly by the female, incubation period of 14-16 days. Canned canary for the valley of birds, domestic resistance to coarse feed. ” Luo Na species,” the song is tight ‘JiJi – JiJi -‘, ‘ Ju … Ju ..’ and ‘Jie, Ju ..’; “Shandong species of” chirping sound is loud and tortuous ‘JiJi … … ‘and’ JiaJia … ‘. Young birds can also imitate the lark and thrush of the song, and rich performance talent, after training after the “pick up”, “wearing a mask” and other juggling.
Canary bird like a clean environment, so the cages of the feces should be regularly cleared, habitat should also be cleaned regularly. Drinking water every day to be replaced. Hibiscus birds like the water bath, the summer to make their daily water bath once, the winter to use warm water once a week water bath, after the bath to be dry and then moved to the outside, so as not to cause a cold.

But in the dressing and breeding season minerals, vitamins to be supplied separately. Hibiscus birds daily feed is generally cereals, pasta, a small amount of oil crops and vegetables. Cereals include millet , tares, millet and so on. Oil crops include Suzi, rapeseed, peanuts, walnut and so on. These oil crops usually do not have to feed, but in the chicks, plowing period, estrus was appropriate supply. This is conducive to the breeding of birds.

Common variety

Although China since the 1940s since the introduction of foreign countries, but did not pay attention to the maintenance of varieties, and now purely not much. Chinese canary mainly by the ” Shandong species”, ” Yangzhou species” and the German “Rhone species” 3 varieties. Shanghai to raise “Luo Na species” mainly, this bird body slender, feather color changes more, from yellow and white, orange, bronze, silver and other colors. Head and neck from the feathers to the four sides of the crests, wings from the feathers of different colors, symmetrical pairs of flowers on both sides, long and mildly sound, tone light and soft, singing up and down the beak closed, if the opening call that impure.

The feathers grow into young birds: similar to the birds  of the existing  domesticated history of the longest gold canaries, who is very special markings for easy identification, as early as in 1709 appeared in the literature on the record. Variegated canary has also disappeared for some time, is now quite a common pet bird. Feathers are a very important feature, the competition must be at any time to turn the body so that the review can see them behind the crescent-shaped feathers.identification; male will sing breeding: incubation period of 14 days, 14 days after.

Feeding methods: feeding with canary seed, green food, and soft food. Participating birds also need to feed the coloring agent, and should be just before the change in the front of the feeding, to ensure uniform feathers, feathers, and markings is also a very important part of the participating birds. The variegated canary is highly resistant and can be kept outdoors throughout the year.
Reproduction: prepare the nest for its breeding. Usually describe the feather type, commonly used “golden yellow” and “silvery white” instead of “yellow” and “dark yellow”. In order to get the best breeding results, should be “golden yellow” varieties and “silver white” varieties to mate. Professional bird who is also a small pot with a complete hat-shaped head of the variegated canary mating, because it will make the chicks hat too large. Although the hat-shaped feathers are not complete varieties can also be successful mating breeding, but generally with a complete hat-shaped feather species and another hat-shaped canine no mating.

Feeding Management

Canary’s body is relatively weak, usually should let them more exercise, therefore, feeding cage must be large, it is best to use a special canary cage. Male and female birds in the usual sub-cage feeding, each cage only raised one. 8, 9 months to the breeding of dragon species and cage feeding, so that they nest breeding. Breeding cage mostly wooden, 46 cm * 30 cm * 35 cm. With grass or bamboo woven into the shape of a bowl, the mouth diameter of 11 cm, 5 cm deep artificial nest, hanging above the breeding cage. Cage set in the food tank, the mouth of the tank to large, dwelling is best flat round, the bottom of the cage covered with fine sand.
Canary daily feed millet, barnyard grass, corn face corn bread, vegetable seeds, apples, vegetables and so on. Can be mixed with several kinds of feed, such as millet 2, 7 tares, rapeseed 1. When the tares are difficult, they can be replaced by millet or millet. Apple must be cut into small pieces, vegetables must be chopped. During the winter or dressing period, the feed ratio is 2 millet, 6 tares, and rapeseed (Suzi).

Before pairing start feeding birds eggs millet, bone meal feed and heat continues to be supplied after closing the cage. After the start of the incubation of the feed, the addition of 20% rapeseed and white sesame seeds. After the chicks shell, the supply of egg yolk face (cooked egg yolk, millet or corn flour 120 grams stirring), vegetables and oyster shell powder and so on.
In the management of the cage than the general requirements of a higher bird. Weekly remove the cage bottom manure will be 2-3 times, food cans and jugs brushing once a day and get a new food, fresh water, habitat bar wash every 3 days, the water bath at least once a week, Zhao Jia timely pruning. Canary bird if the long time by the direct sunlight, will make the feather fade, Lorna canary will be loudly, resulting in the sound becomes rough, so every day in the soft sun drying for an hour is enough. Summer night, it is best to cover the cage with cage cover, to prevent mosquito bites.
Every day from July to August is a canary bird dressing period, the infirm are often dead, healthy people are susceptible to disease. Therefore, in addition to the feed species increased by 10% rapeseed and cuttlefish bone powder, but also to avoid blowing, as little as possible contact with the outside world.


Variety Breeding

For reproduction, before pairing, canary feeding to separate male and female, and the like are most separated from each other by cage kissing time and then put them together breeding cage. When the male and female birds and good life, you can put the artificial nest hanging above the breeding cage. See the female mouth Diao feathers wandering in the nest or in the nest on the spin, said the nest began, should be clean cotton hanging on the cage, the birds will soon be the title to the nest. Nuo built after 3-4 days, the female began to lay eggs, 2-6 per litter.
Canary hatchery is served by female. As the female produces 1 egg per day, so the birds time is inconsistent. In order to overcome this deficiency, in some places after the spawning of the female, with gypsum made of false eggs out of the real eggs preserved, and so on when the four eggs out of the false eggs, then the first three eggs back Nest, let the birds hatch, so that four chicks in the same day shell. Hatch the sixth day in the light under the eggs, remove the unfertilized eggs, 10 days later re-test once. Hatch 14-16 days.
Chicks out of their own mouth will not foraging, to rely on parent feeding. Little canary Yuyao is egg yolk, cabbage and other nutritious and digestible food and water. Nursery should be fed every day a fresh egg yolk, pay attention to observe whether the birds fed chicks.

In general, chicks do not eat food within 24 hours will not starve to death, if the next day the birds are still not feeding, must be artificial feeding, that is, egg yolk and vegetable juice into a paste, with a small bamboo stick, Pick egg yellow paste to the chicks mouth, until the chicks eat enough. 1-2 days later, such as the birds began to feed the chicks, you can stop the artificial feeding, or have been insisting to the chicks can poke their own so far.

Chicks from the shell to the feathers Zhang about 25 days, egg yolk face to feed every day. 1 month later, the chicks can be detached from the individual birds alone. At this time the feed is still egg yolk-based, to the chicks after 2 months of age can be gradually changed to daily feed. Most of the birds in the chicks shells after 12-21 days and began to mate spawning, then the birds will drive out the bird’s nest, if the birds refused to leave, it will break the head of the Eritrea. At this point in order to protect the safety of young birds in the cage should be added to an artificial nest, nest put cotton or bamboo clothes, so that the birds themselves to clean up the nest, you can avoid driving the chicks.

Chicks after 6 months of breeding began to tweet, 9-10 months to achieve sexual maturity. The little canary bird must be led by the good bird to learn the nice tweets, the old canary, the lark, the big tits <a I = 8> and so are a small canary good singing teacher, can also be used to sing songs or recordings to teach a small canary whistling.

Must be taught in childhood young beets tweets, generally believed that the first dressing after no longer “catch” the Red canary and practice to maintain and genetic related, it is the orange canary bird and the leeese hybrids, to maintain the red generation, back to the cross is the most effective way. Feed to maintain the role of plumage has also been confirmed, there are pigments abroad. But the feathers of this bird are unnatural and dull.
