How Do I Get My Canary to Stop Singing?

I have an 11 yr old canary. He stopped singing until we got a budgie. Now he won’t be quiet. And he gets really LOUD. Louder than he ever sang before.

He also imitates my Ringneck, which makes for quite a racket. Is there any way I can get him to stop singing? Seriously, he starts as soon as the sun is up, and his cage is covered.


On a completely related note, would you like a nice canary who’s a really good singer?


Dear Lisa


Your elderly canary may have given up finding someone to listen to his song until you brought home the budgie.

He now has someone to hear him and also someone to learn new songs from.


And also the ringneck? When did that enter the flock?


There are recordings of popular canary songs that can be used to help a canary learn new songs.

The sounds of another bird work as well.


You brought home singing birds, some more melodic than others.


Enjoy the music they make.
