Red Factor Canary (Male and female) birds for sale

Red Factor Canary birds for sale|

 

Description:

A nice well built bird, the Red Factor Canary bird will reach about 5 1/2 (14 cm) inches in length. These canaries are bred to show and there are many versions of this canary today. They are divided into Melanins and the Lipochromes classes. These are further divided into frosts or non-frosts, which affects how bright their color appears, and then into hard and soft feathers. Stance wise, they should stand perched at a 45° angle and their head should not be snaky or overly long.

Care and feeding Red Factor Canary birds

Canaries like wide open spaces so provide a roomy cage. Provide a cage with vertical bars and small perches of different size for foot exercise. Have at least 1 perch set high in the cage for the canary to roost (sleep). The cage should be placed high, so the canary can look down on us so to speak.
Canaries eat mainly canary seed and rape seed. Vitamin coated canary seed mixes are readily available at a pet store. Greens are also enjoyed and can be offered daily along with a little calcium in the form of a cuttlebone.
In all Color Bred Canaries, red and orange pigments are obtained from their diet. Even the color of Red Siskin was found to be dependent on what it ate in the wild. Consequently the Red Factor Canary also requires feeding a special diet to keep its intense coloring.

Social Behaviors:

They are good-natured social creatures that do well when kept in cages or in aviaries. They are timid birds though and should not be housed with parakeets, lovebirds, or other hookbills that tend to be more aggressive birds by nature.
Male canaries should be kept in a cage by themselves to ensure quality singing. Males can be territorial and pairing up with two male canaries in a cage can cause fights. In a spacious aviary canaries can generally be housed with other canaries, finches, and other hardbills.
