Canarian breeding can be done for profit or just for the enjoyment of new birds. If you want to breed yours, there are a few things you need to know. This article will give you some tips on canary breeding.

Diet

Before attempting to raise both of them, you should start feeding them a rich diet. This will help give them more energy for the next egg production and physical activity. It is better to feed the birds vegetables, apples and hard-boiled eggs.

Fighting

One of the main problems you can experience when canary breeding is fighting. The male sometimes collides with the female. Male abuse can even be life-threatening. So be sure to keep an eye on things and separate the two if necessary. You can help avoid fighting by keeping the two birds in adjacent cages until they get used to each other.

Nest

You will need at least one nest for each pair of birds when raising canaries. It may be a bit better if you provide two nests. The nest can be made of materials such as burlap, dryer lint, and shredded paper. Some birds can be a bit fussy.

Eggs

Most chickens lay five small blue eggs, while some can produce as many as eight. About a week after it begins to settle on the eggs, you should hold each of them up to the light to check for signs of an embryo. If the eggs are clear after all this time, you should throw them away. Make sure to always wash your hands before handling the eggs. Harmful substances can get out of your hands and cause harm to the developing chicks through the eggshell.
