Not All Chicks Created Equal PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 20 April 2007

Hatchling canaries defy the truism that all baby animals are cute. Born just 14 hours earlier and each weighing hardly more than an aspirin tablet, the three little birds now balled together in a nest are extravagantly repellent, squirming grubs of flesh and fuzz that look less avian than larval. They seem too feeble to be taken seriously, yet simulate the arrival of a parent canary with a puff of air and they start behaving as young birds should: lifting their heads, opening their microbeaks and begging for dinner.

The fun is getting started soon!  At this time if you're using full spectrum light you should be at 12 hours.  It is recommended to use PHILIPS 32W T8 FLUORESCENT 5000K 98CRI (F32T8/TL950) light bulb because it's closest to the sun's natural light. Their life is 20,000 hours; they come in length of 48 inches.  I've been using it for a long time and they are worth every penny.

January with your Rollers PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 02 November 2006

By the time the show season closes in early January, you will have selected your breeders for this year. If your planning includes the acquisition of new stock, it is wise to acquire it as early as possible. They will then have adequate time to get used to your handling and feeding. As a result, they will go into the breeding cages well adjusted and ready for their duty as parents. You must provide the best possible food available for them at all times; frequently changed water, and providing a bath on warm, sunny days. Preferably, these should be provided in the early morning so the birds' feathers will be perfectly dry when they go to roost at sundown. When changing their drinking water, it is essential the vessels be brushed clean daily, and frequently washed in detergent and very hot water.
