My name is Laura and i'm here to talk to you about canaries. All canaries require seed in their diet. Seed is important but it is not the only thing. Canaries must have pelleted food and fresh fruits and vegetables in order to have a well rounded and balanced diet. Make sure your canary has a full supply of water and a fresh supply of water on a daily basis. Canaries need a lot of water, they bathe a lot. It's very important for you to keep your canaries cage clean. Most cages come with a wire rack on the bottom that is easily scrubbed, and a small drawer on the bottom that can be removed and dumped. Canaries are very suseptible to giardia. Giardia is a species spread bacteria and it can kill them. You need to make sure that the bottom of your cage is kept fairly clean.
