OMG I can't believe I just read this. DH and I bought his father a canary for his birthday. He loved the singing. Sooo dad bought another one. They mated. They wound up raising and showing (many first place winners) over 300 canaries and they fed them eggs and toast too. How funny is that? They also fed them paprika to make their feathers redder.

We have three feeders with different seeds in each, as well a a suet cake.
The little rascals seem very happy with what they get.

Nothing other than a hummingbird feeder during the appropriate season. We have too may outside kitties, which wouldn't be fair to the birdies.

At least the kitties have kept the squirrel population down, which allows us to harvest pecans from our 5 trees in the back yard.

I buy 50Lb. bags of wild bird seed at a feed & tack store near me.
I feed the birds off & on all year, but they can't depend on me for regular feeding.
I also keep water around in the bird baths all summer.
Keeps them on their toes. toes?
