Daily Care for My Canaries

My vibrant and melodious red factor canaries are thriving and singing longer and louder than ever before - now enjoying their days from an airy light-filled corner of my enclosed porch.

I keep a number of birds as pets, including a couple dozen or so red factor canaries that live with me inside my Winter House. They have a large wooden cage I designed after one that came from France, built around 1900 - probably to house doves or quails. Every morning, the cage is cleaned and the birds are given a fresh buffet of seeds and greens from my greenhouses. For anyone who enjoys their song and curious, active personalities, it’s well worth every chore.

Here are some photos - enjoy.
