What to do with a unfertilized canary egg?

One of the most important treats you can give your canary is...

Boiled Egg

Whether it's a chicken egg or canary egg.

Egg is a great supply of protein which wild canaries get from insects.

Boiled egg is a huge part of canary feeding for canary breeders. The protein is super-important for canary egg production and as a soft food for baby canaries.

It's also important for canaries that are not breeding. Protein supplies the muscle with amino acids which keep the muscles strong and healthy.

Boil the egg for 15 to 20 minutes. Remove the shell...or not...I like to offer the shell separately so the canary can choose which one he eats.

Mash it up and put about a teaspoon in his treat dish. (Let it cool down first.) Don't let the egg sit in the cage more than 4 or 5 hours. All kinds of nasty bacteria and such like to grow on eggs and can make your canary sick. Twice a week will give your canary a good amount of protein in his canary feeding program.

Why do baby canaries die after 10 days?

They usually don't , If they do there could be many reasons.

Perhaps the mother is not feeding them enough or the father rejects them. It's not abnormal to have one or two babies die out of a clutch of eggs. Some get less nutrition than the rest and die from the others weight crushing them.

If they all die something is really wrong. You may not be supplying the parent birds with the correct foods. No matter how good the mother or father may be at the end of the day they can only feed the youngsters the food you give them. I breed birds and it's something I'm very careful about. Imperial440

Also remember that like all babies, they need to be kept warm and out of drafts. It's very easy for birds to "catch cold" even when they are older.

How do you make a canary come back to its home?

I would first like to extend my deepest condolences regarding the loss of your canary. I have had MANY friends throughout my life that have accidentally left the cage door open. NONE of them EVER came back. Perhaps, yours will be different. I suppose we can hope for the best. The ONLY way to attract your canary is to have fostered a relationship in which it would not want to leave in the first place. For all we know, it has found it's natural home already. Chin up, and good luck.

What to do..canary hen's sitting on babies they're about 13 days old and she's ready to lay eggs again i put another nest but i fear that the chicks will day if she will die if she didn't sit on them?

Do not put another nest in a naturally birds will use the nest they currently using disturbing to mother can cause her to destroy all eggs and chicks (hatchlings ) . And the chicks won't die because they huddle together and share body heat. In nature the mother can leave the nest to gather food. Hope this was helpful.

Why do you call canary girls canary girls?

The name came about about because of their skin and hair colour, which resulted from exposure to the toluene vapour and picric acid droplets, from pouring the liquid TNT (Tri-Nitro-Toluene) into the shells for the war effort. While the men signed up or were drafted into the fighting, women worked at home, making weapons and ammunition's during WWI. Some were directly exposed to Toluene and picric acid. As their liver's failed the skin turned yellow, from the accumulation of toluene in the fatty acids. Red haired women's would hair would turn green, and other women's hair would turn red as the poisoning became further developed. The contrast in colour's resembled a pet bird bred for it's beautiful colour's and wonderful voice, known as the canary. Unfortunately the effects of the poisoning by toluene was usually fatal in about 8-12 weeks as little personal protective equipment equipment or adequate ventilation was used, with most shell pouring was done in the kitchens or basements of houses during this time. Given the airship bombing of factories over England by German forces.

Those with higher concentrations in shorter periods of times suffered the effects more intensely. Following the the general principals of occupational and industrial exposure;

- Time

- Concentration

- Individual susceptability

- toxicity of the substance being handled

- control measures in place (In this case minimal to nil)

Sadly the women, and the society they worked in, saw this as an honourable sacrifice they were making, with occupational physicians noting in some cases the dying young ladies stating "I am glad I got to die for a worthy cause, in providing for the defense of my king and country". Most women who were involved in this occupation were between ages of 18 and 29 years of age.

WWII saw a repeat of the canaries as a workplace occupational disease, but on a much lesser scale, as factories were more prevalent, and ventilation systems better, and health safety laws more strictly enforced in the UK factories.

You have king quails that hatch out young but they seem to die within a week of hatching what are you doing wrong They are on the bottom of a canary aviary?

They are almost certainly starving to death - they need access to very fine chick crumbs/crumbles and nothing else to eat until they are 3-4 weeks old. The drinker has to be accessible also. Another possibility is coccidiosis - a protozoan disease of the gut.
