Lewis Morgan: Veteran Canary Fancier For 44 Years And Still Studying And Learning!
by Lewis Morgan
A few things I have picked up over the years!
1. Nesting Material: Never give hens dryer lint for nesting material.
It invariably has polyester fibers that will wrap around the hens toes or feet and cause them to fall off.
2. Homemade Nests: I have used the proper size of tuna fish cans painted with flour and water paste inside. Need wire hooks to fasten to the inside of the cage.
3.Change fledgelings over to seeds after two weeks and do not let them eat any egg or soft food until they start their juvenile moult.
Crack seeds in a blender for them. About half of them will develop a condition called BLUEBelly with too much soft food. I hope this can be of help to you!
