Multiple Reasons for Keeping a
Pet Canary Bird
in Your Home.
The simple joys of keeping a pet canary bird are unknown by many but cherished by a multitude.
Owning a pet canary can bring joy, companionship, and satisfaction.
The canary’s crisp clear singing can bring immeasurable joy to the canary owner’s life. Wake up each morning with the rolled warbling and long ever-changing songs of your entertaining pet bird.
The canary bird sings in a harmonious order of extended tours which include fluid like rolls, deep flutes, and soul stirring hollow bells.
Turn your noisy stereo and TV OFF and enjoy nature’s music in the form of your cheerful pet canary. Using recordings of singing canaries will energize your bird and teach him a few new tunes.
People have kept pets for eons. From the beginning of recorded history, animals have taken a special place in the lives of mankind. Even Adam was instructed to care for the animals around him.
The companionship that a singing canary provides is no exception. His pleasant company on a quiet day is all some people need to lift themselves out of the doldrums.
A lonely elderly person can benefit immensely from the friendship of a beautiful singing pet canary. My Grandmother had a canary when I was a child and that bird could always bring a smile to her face.
A cheerful canary is a joyous and good friend to the whole family...and did you know that you can hand tame your canary?
It takes patience and plenty of his favorite treats but with a little time you can have your canary "eating out of your hand"...figuratively and literally.
The satisfaction of caring for a pet canary brings a sense of purpose to the life of its owner and can be a great aid in teaching children to learn responsibility.
Having a bright yellow, orange, or red pet bird housed in an attractive designer cage brings beauty and intrigue to your home. As Mathew M. Vriends states in The Canary Handbook, you should have a pet canary bird
“because an attractive living bird can be regarded as a friend and companion or because an ornamental cage can be an artistic addition to our contemporary interior design!”
Is there a down-side to owning a canary bird? Well, there are a couple of negatives...
The cage should be cleaned regularly...No big deal.
Canaries can be a bit messy. Seeds and seed hulls can sometimes fall out of the cage which will require a little cleanup on your part.
During the molt your canary will lose up to 2,000 feathers which need to be picked up. It sounds like a lot but the molt only lasts a month or two then he's back to normal.
Canaries occasionally get sick and die for apparently no reason. Almost all this can be prevented though by making sure you know how to care for a canary and providing excellent canary care. It's really easy. Just a few tips will get you started.
