My daughter Sandy helps me water and feed each morning. It is a time consuming task as my birds are too numerous to count and I would guess about 300 canaries. She is excellent help with about 20 years experience with her chickens. She know to watch for signs of trouble in every cage. This morning she noticed a Stafford that was on the bottom of the cage and not perching. Wisely, she caught it and handed it to me to remove all the excrement that was plugging its vent. Then she springs into action to try and immediately reverse the dehydration which is evident by the birds squinting eyes.
What is in the water bottles?
How nice to have someone to share your hobby.
The ones in the picture are orlux this time of year 1 tsp to gallon water. Friday till Monday it is KD powder, once a month 2 days of S76 and once a week Optimix Biodecken minerals, other days often Boost 250 but I am running out 8 drops per gallon. Once every two weeks poultry 1/4 tsp to gallon, biodecken multi plus immune support.
I believe that the most common of death among pet canaries is dehydration. Canary owners must check each bird cage's water daily to make certain we do not cause unnecessary suffering or loss of stock.
