I purchased my male red factor back in Dec 2010. They shipped him from Va. to Tx. and promised he would arrive alive and was indeed a male. He arrived alive and did sing for me, however, the last 10 months or so he has stopped singing. Also, his coloring is changing to more yellow. I have tried the apples and carrots, and he is just not that interested. I have bought the feeding for carnaries,,,along with the treats for canaries.. his molting has seemed to be on going...he looks thin...I have trimmed his nails for perching... I am now trying to find tape training...on line.... Any other suggestions out there ?? Oh by the way, I did let my 87 yr old mother have him for a few months, since my father passed away last August...so she would feel like she had a purpose in her daily chores. She did keep her place very hot....which I thought might be good for a tiny bird.? Now I read to keep them cool temperatures.? Any advice out there would be nice. I am glad to have finally found this site. Cathy

    Scroll up in this Animal World article and read the information rgarding the Care and Feeding for a red factor.  They require a specialized diet to maintain the redish coloring.  Glad your grandma enjoyed her but i doubt it was warm enough to have any effect on your feathered fella.

Hello, if I breed a male classic Timbrado with a female discontinuous Timbrado, what will their offsprings be? a cross breed?

I have a crested male and a corona female gloster. I had them flown in about a month ago. I have had to separate because they are fighting. I noticed the male's crest is missing feathers on top and saw feathers on the bottom of the cage. He sings, and she only chirps. Why is she so mean to him???

    My guess is that the male is interested in mating and the female isn't as of yet. So he approaches and she isn't ready. Now if she is 'preening' his crest feathers - she is starting to be ready. She is just over preeening. It actually can be the other way around where she wishes to mate and he isn't ready. Just give it some time. They will get it together.

My daughter picked up a canary on the street, It must've escaped from its owners and we are taking care of it. The breeder tag on the leg reads:
C AS 10 5 7 6 6 Can anyone explain what this means? I live in Toronto, Canada.

    Many times breeders will have their own 'code' to identify their babies and pairs. The code identifies the breeder, possibly the number of the parents, the year and the number of the baby.

I first must thank you for letting anyone leave a comment on your site, as I have been able to voice my opinion regarding canaries. Thank you! Due to you, I was thinking about a coloumn I was reading the other day in conection with the different breeds of canaries etc. Borders, scotch fancy, english canaries, all different breeds as they were calling them, where as it should have been types, and so on. And putting the canaries into two classes, singing birds and colour birds. The way I see it is we have many types of dogs that look different but they are still a dog. What I'm trying to say there really is only one canary but some may look different and their colours may differ. But believe me, everyone of them can sing as their song is picked up by them from where they leave the nest. And we can even teach a canary to sing a wild finch song as they will mimick and learn any song they constantly hear. An example is the roller canary. I have bred border type canaries and taught them to learn the roller song from other roller canaries. And regards their colour, we can breed any of the colours we have in any type of canary as we will call it. Even red as in the redfactor, which should be known as red canary because red is only put in the bird by colour feeding. So if we feed carophyll red mixed either in the soft food or in the drinking water, we will make the canary change from yellow to red of any shade. I hope this is useful to someone.

    Hey thanx. I read about how canaries can change colour from yellow to red with chemicals in their food or water maybe twenty years ago but when I mentioned this to my workmates today, they all thought I was crazy. No-one else had heard about this. I started to wonder if I remembered correctly or not. Now I know for sure. Cheers.

    Your knowledge is limited, there was a man in Germany spent many years crossing Red Hooded Siskins with Canaries to finaly succeed with a viable crossbred , ie Red Factors, if the red factor is missing you will never achieve the same intensity with an ordinary canary which has been color fed.

    Look up the history of the Red Factor Canary.

I have 1 female timbrado laying an egg. The weird thing is that there is no male bird in the cage, how could this happen ? Is there any chances for the egg to hatch ?

    Females can lay eggs and they do not need a male in order to lay the egg. Female birds can just lay eggs (think of chickens). Because there is no male, the egg will not be fertile so it will not hatch. However, if she is sitting the egg, let her sit it for 14 days and she will probably lose interest and then just throw it out. Have fun.
