I Have 2 Happy Little Pet Canary Birds And I Love Them

Regarding your recent issue of CanaryTips, I do not have "A" messy canary - I have "TWO" messy canaries.
They are 2 boys. They do fight from time to time and there is a lot of posturing and activity but without any bodily contact. I do have another cage and if things got out of hand, I would move one of them.
They both sing - one better than the other.
They are 2 happy little birds and I love them. The mess they make does not worry me.
I feed them well - seed, egg-food when molting, which they both love, and dandelion leaves which are very acceptable to them. Also lettuce leaves and apple.
I do not use any form of weed-killer or sprays in my garden so when dandelions grow in my lawn I manage to save enough young leaves for the 2 boys.
They go by the names of Uriol and Raffael, known to friends and family as Uri and Raffi.
One one occasion, Uri escaped from the cage and I could not catch him. Raffi was going mad in the cage and at one stage was trying to pull Uri back in through the bars of the cage by his tail feathers.
Eventually I gave up, left the door of the cage open, and Uri found his own way back, much to the relief of Raffi.
