All Grown Up

Here are my baby canaries all grown up and nearly done with their first molt. They colored in so nicely! Half came out non-intensive and the other half intensive. They are so friendly (for canaries) and so pretty, it's going to be hard letting them go. The first picture is their "before" picture.

They're beautiful! It must be difficult to let them go, I can understand that.

Gorgeous birds. I wouldn't want to let them go either!

Beautiful canaries! I've only seen yellow ones. Hard to let them go but oh how happy their future parents will be! Love the pix!

Beautiful! Have you been feeding any of the foods that make the redder deeper or did they just molt out like that? I've got 2 canaries at the moment. I had quite the collection of them last year but I found them to be too prolific for me and they would nest no matter what. I kept one of my babies back, Vinny, who is a variegated Fife canary and when I needed to find her a mate I ended up getting another hen... this is how I ended up with so many last time! Both are yellow, but Vinny has one splodge of brown on her which makes it look like she has the whole stereotypical mobster hair (hence the name) thanks for sharing!

I give them bogena intensief red, otherwise they would not get that deep red. I use very little (it doesn't even show up in the poop) just enough to get red rather than orange.

Canaries are actually quite easy to keep from breeding, they are very light sensitive. Less than 11.5 hours and they should keep from breeding. (Less if your female is carrying around nesting material)

I tried everything! Nothing worked. Even if I split the cock and hen up they'd still be making nests my two girls at the moment keep laying eggs and trying to sit on them. I've tried giving them to them for long periods of time, taking the eggs, dummy eggs. You name it

I thought you might be feeding them something though. I hadn't seen any such a deep red! It's a common practice here in the UK to try and intensify the colours. The canary food I purchase has got a yellow conditioner in it and I've noticed it makes a huge difference

Yeah, sometimes they are very prolific breeders. This year, my female wouldn't stop laying and it was driving me crazy, but I reduced the lights by 1/2 hr one week and 1/2 hr two weeks later...it worked like magic (for my canary anyway )

My canaries are very deep red because they are bronze canaries (red black). Usually, the more popular ones and the ones in the pet stores are just red, these are red with melanin (the dark stripes) so it gives them that deep color....they aren't usually available in pet stores because they tend to look black in low light.

Ah okay, thanks for explaining! I'm not so hot on canaries at all. I've never been a big fan because the entire British bird scene appears to be mostly canaries. I've always wanted to be a bit different. I only bought that one pair for my grandad and I ended up with a ton of them! But due to housing everybody on their own I ended up giving up, as I said. And it's creeping back up again now, sigh!
