Canaries: Feeding

In the breeding season, feed plain canary seed 14 parts, rape seed 2 parts, whole oats 2 parts, linseed half part, white millet 1 and half parts. In addition, give them daily small quantities of fresh green feed such as thistle or lettuce.

While the young are being reared, continue feeding the egg food described above (a crumbled mixture of milk arrowroot biscuits and hardboiled egg yolk); it may also be fed to breeding birds with poor mating. Grit and cuttlefish should be made available.
