This is the breeding area. All breeding cocks and hens, stay in these cages from January untill June.

 All breeding cocks are placed here at the beginning of January

and stay alone for 30 days. They get prepared for the mating season, with special diet and food supliments.

Meanwhile the breeding hens are in the Fly cages and when the time is right each one is selected 

to mate the correct cock. The size of both breeding cock and breeding hen, the hardness or softness of their 

feathers, are  some of the reasons on why we choose the specific pairs!!

In here we keep the fertile eggs, till the last egg is born. the eggs are marked and turned around

once a day. The eggs are replaced with a plastic egg, so the breeding hen will not be stressed.

all the eggs are kept here until all the eggs are born.

 

Below is the hospital cage where we place the ill canaries. This cage is heated with a ceramic lamp, and

has a steady temperature. When a canary is ill, always tries to keep itself warm, and by doing so looses its 

energy and becomes  exhausted. By providing the correct  temperature and  the correct treatment, the ill

                                 canary has better chances to survive.

                              Following are our Fly cages. Breeding hens are kept separate from breeding cocks. The new canaries are all

                              kept in a different cage from the adult canaries to avoid fights, that  many times end up in deaths.

                              New canaries have different diet from adult canaries.
