Video polly fern sergeant
pollyfern one minute they are angry chasing each other round and the next morris is regurgitating food for olive and having little kisses. #grossbutsweet #broodybirds #canarylife #complicated 1d
  •   canaryoc Love....so confusing xD 1d
  •   sandravandenbroek So sweet 24h
  •   charmingcreatures It sounds as though Olive isn't quite ready for the breeding season just yet and that's why she's acting angry towards him. Don't worry though as him feeding her is a good sign that she is accepting his advances! She must wear the trousers in this relationship 24h
  •   pollyfern Thanks for the advice ️ olive definitely wouldn't let morris wear the trousers in their relationship! haha she's far too bossy and demanding I'm relieved to know it's normal behaviour. Was starting to think I should separate them and I really didn't want to. Hope your lovely little ones are all well and enjoying life in there magical aviary! @charmingcreatures 24h
  •   charmingcreatures She must be the dominant one then! ️ It's normally aggression with the males that is the problem but as long as they aren't hurting each other they should be fine. I've had to separate Siskin before as he was chasing Olive around and being a bit of a bully, and I found that separating him made them grow fonder of each other once they were reintroduced. (That old saying about distance making the heart grow fonder!) Oh thank you, they are all well apart from little Olive, who sadly is not very well at the moment, she's a fighter though so keeping our fingers crossed 24h
  •   pollyfern Yes I think I will maybe pop her in a separate cage for a hour a day or something, but still have them next to each other. Morris calls very loudly and gets upset when she's not in sight. I notice that olive gets more loving when I take her out for ten mins! So you are probably right. She is very much the dominant one. I Don't know if it's because I got her first or whether it's just their personalities. Morris is the dearest little chap, he's a proper little gentleman. Very nervous and shy but gentle, he doesn't even sit on my hand or arm, its strange. I guess some just aren't as tame as others, also I got him at the age of one so I don't know what his life was like previously. I'm so sorry to hear about your dear olive, I hope she recovers soon. Such fragile little creatures and it's so upsetting when they are unwell. 23h
  •   charmingcreatures Yes it's true that one will always be more dominant, so that's probably the case. And yes as we know they all differ greatly in personality :) In my experience it's the females that are more attentive towards the males, following them around & calling for them, so it sounds like Morris is quite the little sweetie! My canaries before Olive & Siskin were all very laid back though and not aggressive at all, whereas Siskin has been a bit of a bully at times. But like you say about Morris, he was older too and is very shy & it makes a difference to how they act around us. Maybe he just needs a bit more time for your canary whispering to take effect Thank you, that's very kind, and yes they are so very fragile. Her resilience has been remarkable so far 23h

  •   hesperdoodle : ) happy new year, i am looking forward to year full of your adorable work and pictures the wool i used is debbie bliss eco baby organic cotton (i think, can't quite find the label ) but i always look for a 100% cotton that washes well ♡ xx 3w
