Canary pals?

I was wondering if anyone has experience as to how well a conure and canaries would mingle? I would assume the conure would not see them as a threat due to the size difference but still enjoy seeing other birds.

I don't think I would put them into the same cage as we all like our own space.

Re: Canary pals?

I wouldn't. Conures are known to be nippy and kind of bullies and canaries wouldn't be able to defend themselves if it came down to it.

Well, I'm notoriously of little help... the Rb hates everybody and everybird except for me.

I do applaud your reaching out for input!

Good luck.

I would be worried that the little guy may get hurt...
My two are still not terribly fond of each other and they are the same species!!

Re: Canary pals?

My GCC has bitten off three toes of my poor budgie!! So I would worry. Plus canaries can carry diseases they are usually bred in large colonies, and as they are small birds they often aren't health checked as well as other species. So I've read it's not good to mix them ......
