Canaries and Mirrors In The Canary Cage
Since I have given my canary two mirrors in his cage, he is so happy - when he is not singing, he is "loving" and chatting to himself in his mirrors.
No need for a second canary!
Yes, often a pet canary will enjoy the company of the "other" bird in the mirror. A word of caution here though...
Some canaries will feel threatened by the other bird and try to fight with it. Yes, he'll actually fight with the mirror. This can create a lot of stress and and possible poor health as a result.
Even if he doesn't fight with the mirror it might prevent a canary from singing.
It's worth a try though. Little canary cage mirrors are cheap and if it causes any problems you can just take it out.
Thanks Sheila. Excellent tip!
