My Pet Canary Bird, Timmy, Is A Roller And Is So Inspiring!
(Duncan, B.C. Canada)
Roller Pet Canary Bird
I always keep, Timmy, my canary in his cage, so he needs my company.
He comes running along his perch to me chirping and pecks my nose (be careful, when he misses and hits your lips, it really hurts :>) )
I blow gentle breezes on him - he loves this, and when we had the hot weather I sprayed him down several times a day (about 10 sprays) with cold water.
I always have music playing in the house for him, so he is never lonely.
A couple of years ago when I moved here to the Cowichan Valley, Timmy had a bit of a rough time. He went through four moults and I thought he forgot how to sing for the next year, so bought him
a CD of canary songs. Now a year later, he is the happiest bird!
He is spoiled every morning with a different variety of fresh, organic lettuce and fruits and vegetable bits.
I love him so much and always tell him he is the "joy of my life". He is a Roller and is so inspiring! If I want to feed him something new, I always check with you first, Darren.
