When it comes to beautiful-looking birds, people often think of parrots. Speaking of birds that sing nicely, people might think of Lark. But do you know what a bird that looks beautiful and sings good?
That should be the canary. They are born with a good voice, love to be clean in life, and have very clean feathers. The slender legs and the agile body are full of energy and are loved by people. Now the canary has become one of our important ornamental birds. And nowadays, there are many varieties cultivated, and the varieties cultivated in different regions are named differently, such as the white jade bird in Shandong, the Baiyan in Foshan in Guangzhou, the Furong in Yangzhou, and the "Rona" in Germany.
As ornamental birds, their ornamental nature can no longer meet the needs of some bird farmers. Slowly people began to train the canaries and let them learn certain skills. The skills that canaries can learn are flying, catching objects, holding objects, wearing masks, etc. Learning these skills will make our canaries versatile!
Then let's take a look at how to let canaries learn these interesting skills!
In order to avoid the situation that is gone forever, it is best to choose a new bird that was born in the past and has just grown feathers. If you have time or enough experience, you can also raise it with half-hair and carry out the release training. . Before preparing to release the canary for training, make sure it is half full. Don't overfeed, otherwise it will be difficult to cooperate. It is advisable to conduct the initial training in a closed room. New birds who are afraid of people must be trained gradually in the cage to be able to eat before putting them indoors for training. After 4 o'clock in the afternoon every day, be sure to give them enough food in the cage to ensure that they can get enough recovery during the normal night without delaying the next day's release training.
During training, you can use their favorite foods such as Su Zi,Put the rapeseed in the palm, and let them eat with a certain password before they eat. Repeated training like this, training for half an hour to an hour at a time, let them rest before continuing. When resting, it must be returned to the cage voluntarily, and the canary must use the cage as a safe place for daily rest. Generally, a preliminary conditioned reflex will be formed in two or three days, and you can be proficient in a week or so. When it reaches one month, you can initially try to lift the cage and go out to fly. Make sure that the birds are hungry before flying outdoors, and find a quieter environment to prevent them from being frightened and flying away. After you are fully proficient, you can relax some requirements.
First, we still make the canaries half full. During training, we hold the food they usually eat with two fingers and place them in front of the canaries. After being able to eat with the fingers, gently throw the food over the bird's beak until it can receive the food smoothly. After a few days of consolidation, you can use bone pellets and food alternately, and the canary receives the food After receiving the projectile, we couldn’t swallow it. Then we took the projectile in its mouth with our hands to give food rewards. After a while, you can throw a projectile to catch it and put it into your hands to get food rewards.
Still using half-hungry canaries, stick 2-3 grains of their favorite food on top of the items that need to be picked. The size of the items that need to be picked must be moderate so that the canaries can pick up. When the canaries are picked up, we use food to lure them to jump onto the hands to eat, and after they put down the items in their mouths, we have to quickly give them food as a reward. Generally, it is easy for them to jump on their hands to eat, but it is more difficult to carry the items they hold, and they need more training.
4. Wearing a mask
Currently, this skill is generally not trained by anyone. First of all, mask making It may be more troublesome. Before, people used to use ginkgo nucleus to make it. The nucleus was cut along the edge with a sharp blade, and the kernel was removed. A thin iron or copper wire was used in the center of half of the ginkgo nucleus to make a handle for birds to pick up. silverOn the appearance of Apricot Kernel, draw some of his favorite masks with colored pens. The point of training to wear a mask is to find a way to make the canary pick up the handle on the mask. Our early training can refer to the method of gripping objects, sticking food to the handle, as long as the canary picks up the handle, it can give it food rewards, and later cooperate with a fixed password to form a certain conditioned reflex.
The above is the skill training of the canary. It is very simple and may be very troublesome to do. An action may take dozens or even hundreds of times to be successful. If we want them to learn certain skills, we must be patient and careful in advance. Although giving may not be rewarding, but not givingThere will be no return!
