Some of you may remember the story how I came to own this little Canary. Well it started when my friend bought her a few years ago ,mainly for company. As there is nothing quite like a singing Canary filling the house in the morning with its beautiful song. Hoping of course this little one was a male , as it’s a well-known fact that only male’s can sing.A few months or more went by and this little bird gave no sign of a song what so ever. My friend Sara put lots of treats in the cage for her/him , also some kind of toy not sure what this was. After having a day out shopping Sara returned to find this tiny bird caught up in the threads of the new toy:(were around her legs. Oh the horror ……
With the help of her friend they both succeeded to rescue her tiny frame from the tangled mess..Another horror story was this little bird loved the sunshine , so one day Sara put her in the hall by her door , when suddenly Sara heard a crash and a bang running to the hall she noticed a cat had knocked the cage to the ground and shot off. Panicking she quickly picked up the cage to find the little bird just fine , oh thank goodness she pants. Phew!!!!
Well I actually looked after her bird when she went on holiday one June , Sophie her new name by the way. One day she was looking a little poorly and sitting on the bottom of the cage. Oh heck I do hope nothing happens to her, that would be awful especially in my care. Next Morning there it was a little egg, Sara was so convinced this little bird was a male, as the shop assistant told her.
She then continued to lay another 9 eggs, which did take a lot out of her as it would. Back home to Sara we went , until a few weeks later Sara rang me and said I have now purchased a ,male Canary would you like my little egg laying one. Oh yes with pleasure and I collected her the next day. Which was the best thing I have ever done regarding this little bird.
Oh and guess what she sings beautifully which is rather strange don’t you think, after all it is only male’s that sing to this high standard. Lucky me….Thank you Sara 🙂
