The inquiry having been made how to restore the song of canary birds, I will give rny cxpeiionce. A friend of mine gave me a bird that hud not sung for over a year. I treated it as follows Canary birds, as well as all kinds of human have variety in food. I put in one seed-cup, oat meal in another, seed mixed as follows One pound canary and one-half pound rape seeds, putting on the top of this seed cup about, one dozen homp seeds daily, and part of the time leaving out the hemp anJ giving a little good fresh lettuce seed, say iJO or 30 seeds daily, nut too much or it will make the bird drunk and dumpish. Hang also in the cage u nice piece of salt pork, tia well as a good cuttle bone. After tre-Uing the bird in this way for three or four weeks, I procured another canary, a free song- ster, and hung it in the hearing but out of sight of oiy bird, and in a very short time I had as good a singer as I could wish. He has sung ever since, through molting and all Most people afraid of getting their birds in loo good condition, but remember you must not get tljenr fat on- heuip seed, for that seed is their candy and cake.
