    It depends what you like. I love the way the Russian canary sings.

Only birds bred to the standards and banded with closed, registered American Singer bands can be called American Singers, ...a proven American Singer. If a bird looks similar to how some American Singers may look, but was not bred by a member of the American Singers Club because they would have banded it, and has no band... who knows what it is. (Editor's Note: If you plan to acquire this bird to show, looks like you want to make sure you obtain it from a member of this or another recognized breed club for show acceptance.)

    I was at a swapmeet and I saw a bunch of small beautiful, hot and sweaty canaries in a medium cage. They had seed and veggies and water. They were all flying back and forth. I felt so bad for them that I bought a male and brought it home and named him Lucky. Then 2 weeks later I went back and bought a female and called her Luckier. They love anything I feed them and are spunky and fun to look at. I am feeding them required food. They have had 7 babies and are all beautiful and healthy. They both are great parents and love each other and kiss and feed each other.Of course, I don't know what breed or type they are. They look like American Singers. The male sings loud and beautiful to his sweetheart and the babies between 8 weeks and 12 weeks all sing softly together when dad starts to sing. I know I will never be able to band them, but they are beautiful, healthy birds. I'm glad I bought 2 and brought them to a good home. I hope others will buy the others who were so hot, yet spunky. I would never have had these little canaries if I had not gone to this swapmeet and my heart went out to help them. Is there anything I can do to identify my birdies. I don't want to sell them. I will keep them and separate them to stop mating. Mom and dad will stay close in two separate cages.

I just bought a canary that has autumn colors. Can 't tell if it is a male or female. The store says it should sing but nothing yet. I was told that I should get two to sing. Is this true? Also, I have parakeets. Do they get along with canaries? Thanks.

    Those 2 kind of birds are worst enemies I knew somebody who had a canary her daughter got herself a parakeet they try to fight even though they were in separate cages and also will squawk at each other in a yelling way. I got 2 parakeets blue and violet and getting a scarlet macaw.
