Acquired: Pet store

I was 14 when my dad came home with a yellow canary. This was before the time of asking google everything about to care for my pet, we simply kept its cage clean and fresh water and food.
Canaries do eat a lot, and they love to bathe in their water every morning which is really cute to watch. We would let her out and let her fly around the house and then eventually, she would fly back to her cage, we simply left it open and when she was hungry she would go back to her little home.
She sang very beautifully, and one day, my dad decided to get her a mate. they got along great and soon enough they had eggs! I remember how hard they worked to make a nest, we gave them twigs and grass and they built their little nest and filled it up with eggs. not all survived, but one did and hatched. it was a small little bird that the momma bird and dad bird would feed with their mouth and care for very much. It was fascinating to watch.
if you are planning on getting birds, canaries are great. However, they will mate and have babies and those are very difficult to care for and have a very little chance of survival. I wouldn't suggest trying to raise little birds.
