Belgian Canary


Traits

The Belgian canary is intended for more advanced bird enthusiasts. They tend to be nervous and high strung, and therefore do better in an environment in which this behavior is understood. Belgian canaries tend to be quite timid, and do not tend to breed as easily as other colorbred canaries.

Behavior / Health Concerns

The Belgian canary does well in either cages or aviaries. They are on the timid side and should not be housed together with parakeets, lovebirds or other hookbills that tend to be more aggressive. Additionally, males can be territorial and should be kept separately. They like to bathe daily and should be given water to do so. Their environment should not be wet, cool or drafty, and if they are given space to sunbathe, they should also have a shaded area to protect from too much sun. Keep perches clean to avoid any foot problems.
