Does my Canary need to be Groomed?

Canaries do not need to be groomed in the general sense of daily brushings and primping. Birds in general do pretty well self grooming, which includes fluffing their own feathers and keeping their feet clean. You can help your canary stay clean by offering him the opportunity to take frequent baths. Simply provide a small weighted dish with about an inch of water for your bird to bathe in. Most birds like to bathe in cool water so no need to warm it or use hot water when filling. This dish should be separate from your bird’s water dish. You can remove the dish later or leave it in the cage, but make sure to refresh the water. If your bird doesn’t want to bathe in the dish you can try enticing him by placing a few greens (spinach, kale, baby lettuce) in the dish as well. Talk with your veterinarian Cherry Hill, NJ for more tips.
