Description

"This bulletin, intended to meet the requests continually received for information on the care of canaries in sickness and health, is compiled from numerous sources, and includes also some personal experiences and observations of the author. In it the history of the domestication of the canary is touched upon, and there is a brief account, with illustrations, of the common and fancy varieties, which are distinguished by shape and color. The chief usefulness of the bulletin is in its discussion of practical problems. There is a section on the style of cages and their sanitation. Detailed information is given concerning bathing, molt, and food, including the feeding of special foods for deepening the color of the birds. One chapter shows the possibility of breeding canaries in captivity and is designed as an aid to this. The concluding pages deal with the health of the birds. Methods of ridding them of vermin are set forth, as well as instructions for caring for fractured legs and wings, and for the treatment of respiratory and intestinal diseases and of such ailments as loss of feathers. The bulletin is intended for all who are interested in canaries." -- p. 2
