There are several meanings of the song. Here are some below: o o o o Marking its presence to other canaries Signaling of possession of a territory co nquest of a female company make the female during nest building and incubation SI CANTA EL MACHO, READY BEFORE THE NEST. It seems it is proven that if the male sings while the female is working on building the nest, it will rush to finish it and make it a greater number of eggs. This happens even when the female heard only a recording of that song Domestication Taming a canary is not very difficult, but we need lots of time and patience. To tame our canary, start getting used to our presence so as not to panic. The fir st would be to feed through the bars of the cage, using a treat that, when the c anary gets used to come and take the candy without any fear, we move to the next phase is to give some pine nuts, bits cake apple or reaching into the interior of the cage and wait for the canary perch on our hands to eat. When will we, tha t is not the first time you come, but when he gets used to perch on our hands to eat, we try to release the house, that if given that all windows and doors are tightly closed and our impresindible presence there to prevent any harm could be done. THE TRAINING FOR THE SONG Train our canaries for singing is far more difficult, since they receive the right canora genetically inherited, yet to improve their Nesecito songbirds hear a canary adult who is called master. Youth will be house d in small cages attached to form a cage-closet (Fig. 1) and placed the canary a dult (teacher) in front of the cage-closet, so the young singers are set at the teacher to teach their long repertoire THE FERTILE HYBRIDS

The red color has not been the way of the mutation, but is the result of crossin g, and then its Selecting, a canary and a Siskin in Venezuela. This small finch is from South America and, paired with a canary, giving rise to offspring with t he colors of the father and the size of the Canary Islands. The descent of this link makes it possible to continue with additional couplings, obtaining successi vely whenever individuals the size and shape of a canary, keeping the red color of the plumage of the Siskin THE STERILE HYBRIDS In the case of sterile hybrids, unlike hybrids fertile€There are crosses in whic h an offspring is sterile, so we do not hes of no use for the selection, but has an end in itself. This is the case of coupling between canary and goldfinch, wh ose daughters of no interest, while males inherit a canary singing, but mostly t he song of the goldfinch, which makes them precious few singers Canaries, like a ll birds Spring reproduce, but in captivity can be played all year, but this is not very healthy for them, since the female will get tired a lot and we lose, wh at is not sought. In the spring, and with it the days lengthen and temperatures rise, this favors the reproduction of the canary starts breeding season, althoug h as we have said before you can advance the time, which often do farmers to tak e young specimens to be presented at exhibitions and competitions. Discussed later the method used to advance the pla yback, but for now we focus on the natural breeding season. The official start of the breeding season. By tradition this home is set by San Jose on March 19. Maybe because ... it's Fa ther's Day. In what is certain is that then the days are already long and hot en ough to have good prospects for success at the end of incubation. When the female wants to build the nest. One of the most obvious signs that wants to install the nest the female gives wh en he starts pacing around the cage with a pen or any object in its beak, comosi were looking for the best place to build it. ALL THAT YOU NEED THE FUTURE MOTHER.

It sometimes happens that the male mind to the female during incubation and duri ng chick growth. Often when this happens is because the male wants to mate again and the female, and only obeys and serves her maternal instincts, refuses. In t his case it is best to separate the male, through the wall or putting it in anot her cage, but without straying too far, because it is still important that both parents be seen and heard. A LITTLE HELP AT THE MOMENT OF BIRTH. To lend a hand out small eggs, we can, towards the end of the incubation period, dipping a bit to provide moisture to break. With the same ease you can set the bath to the female, so that when you return to the nest it's wet. What not to do is try to help the chick with her hands in the hard work of breaking and hatchi ng, since then it runs the risk of bleeding and cause his death.
