It is advisable to buy a large cage for your canaries, so that they have plenty of room to fly. Make sure that as well as a drinking fountain there is also a bath, as canaries love to bathe. Canaries can also successfully be kept in a mixed aviary with other species, as long as they have a night shelter.
Canaries are generally easy to feed. A good mix for canaries includes various types of seeds, vitamins, minerals and grit. Don't give them too much food at once, as it's easy for them to eat just the tastiest seeds. It's also good to regularly give your canary some fresh fruit or vegetables.
In order to breed, canaries need a nest box for canaries and nesting material. If the canaries are used to each other, the female will build a nest and then lay three to five eggs. After a brooding period of about two weeks, the eggs will hatch. They will leave the nest after just six weeks and a few weeks later they will become independent.
