Greetings everyone, I hope that your breeding program is in full swing? Most of the groups that I am a member of and participate in have been dormant for several days or weeks. I wonder why? I know of many fellow fanciers and friends, they have been getting a lot of aggravation because of the negative occurrences in the bird rooms. Accept the situation with a grain of salt; it is part of the fun! And remember, it's always a challenge to try to correct whatever we are doing wrong with our birds. Don't panic, the season is still young, better days are ahead.

On today's date, I completed my last treatment. The doctors and hospitals promised me that they would do OK for a while without my subsidy. They gave me permission to fly back to the Garden State, New Jersey. They also told me to go make some money and come back to them in about 5 weeks!

Despite the facts that my health conditions have been less than I want them to be, I manage to read and reply to a lot of e-mails by many fellow fanciers describing their problems. I wish that many of the e-mails had been posted for all of us to share; nevertheless, we must respect the wishes of others and remain in private.

Several e-mails stated more or less the following: "I never experienced a breeding season like in 2007" and "All the eggs are clear, and the few that hatch die in just a couple days"; plus many other laments. The first thing that I ask everyone is "What did you do different in managing your birds?" and "Did you feed your birds the same way that you did last year?" Many of them make changes in the management of their birds because they believe it may produce better results.

Some try to save money in feeding their birds by adding chicken scratches to the birds nestling food. Chickens are bred for meat; they are supposed to live less than year. The biological system of a little canary is not a match to the biological system of a chicken. It is better to keep fewer birds in the cage, but provide them with the right food.

I read several postings that some fanciers are experiencing Air Sac mite problems. Prevention of this problem and also other health problems is the best solution. All birds, at least 2 times per year, should be treated with an Ivermectin solution in the drinking water. Personally, in the last couple years, I treat all my birds with Ivermectin in the bathing water in the middle of the breeding season. So far I haven't experienced any negativism amongst my birds. On any given day, just before the bird room goes totally dark, we remove all the drinking water from all the breeding cages. The next morning, bright and early, we place a bathtub full of bathing water containing the Ivermectin in every cage. We add 5 cc of the 1% solution to each gallon of bathing water and we shake the gallon continuously. The thirsty bird will drink the solution and then take a bath. This type of bathing has kept the avian parasites under control in my bird room.

Personally, I would not use corncob for the bottoms of the cages. Mold in corn can and will be detrimental to the health of the birds. Corncobs are also good breeding grounds for avian parasites fangs. These are all bad to the health and welfare of the cage birds. Bottoms grills, in my opinion, are the best for the cage bottoms. The second, better alternative is to use a sheet of paper that can be easily removed, if possible, every day.

Be very careful in the process of soaking the seed to feed to the feeding parents and the youngsters. In my opinion, the best nutritional value is achieved in the soak seed if the same is soaked only about 6 to 8 hours, than drained and kept in the same glass jar for a total of 24 hours in cool place. Rinse it well under running water before each feeding and no one will experience the problems of developing fungus in attempt to sprout the seed mixture. Sprouted seed retains less nutritional value in comparison to the properly soaked seed.

For some of you that breed Red Orange color bred Canaries, to achieve optimal results in coloration, the youngster should receive the color enhancer via their nestling food beginning at six or seven days of age. This should continue during the feeding every day until the end of the exhibition season and thereafter, at least a couple times a week to maintain the red coloration. This method will keep the color bred looking beautiful at all the times.

In New Jersey, as well as other parts of the world, a lot of rain has been falling. Obviously, the spring is blooming everywhere where the calendar marks spring? A lot of delicious greens are available in most parts of the countryside, parks, etc. Also, a lot of seeding heads of weeds and grasses are beginning to be available. All birds devour all of these natural bounties. The Carduelan finches need seeding weeds and grass to induce them to breed. The Gouldian Finches and similar species really enjoy the natural seeding grass in the milky stage. Gouldians, as well as all the other cage birds, will achieve shining plumages by supplying them with what nature has to offer outdoors.

All feeding parents will feed their young better with the supplements available at this time of the year in nature.

The hot weather is approaching very rapidly, make sure to not allow the moist food to go rancid and spoil; this will result in the loss of youngsters in the nest. Don't allow avian parasites to destroy the young birds either. Use with caution, a safe insecticide powder between the nest and the nest pad to minimize the over infestation of these detrimental critters.

During the hot muggy weather, feed very small amounts of soft food to the feeding parents. They will continue on feeding their young with the dry seed mixture that they have before them. Also, it is a good idea to keep a good dry nestling food before all feeding birds at all the times.

This is all for now, I will be flying to New Jersey this afternoon. I am looking forward to seeing my birds breeding progress.  

If you are not a member of the following groups, please join and be part of the learning experience.
