Are there special food requirements for the canary?

Begin with a good quality canary seed mix along with some pellets, placing a dish of both in the cage. As with other birds, the canary also needs and enjoys a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables such as oranges, apples, bananas, canned corn, green peppers, corn on the cob, raw spinach, collard greens, Swiss chard and dandelion greens. You can also choose cooked broccoli, hard boiled eggs, pears, strawberries, peaches, squash, cucumbers and more. Feed in moderation and vary the fresh foods daily for balanced nutrition. Provide an ample supply of fresh water in the cage daily.
