Full Answer

Pet canaries should be housed in cages that are long enough for the bird to fly in. Canaries can be kept at room temperature but care should be taken to ensure the cage isn't in full sunlight for too long each day or the canary can overheat. The cage should be covered at night to provide a regular light-dark cycle.

Canaries eat seed mixes. Commercial mixes intended specifically for canaries are available. In addition, canaries should be offered fresh fruits and vegetables.
