Description:

Fairly short compact birds, the Stafford Canary is 5 inches (12.7 cm) in length. As a “type canary”, they are bred to accepted type standard, meaning they can be clear, variegated or self. They come in bright red and rose ground colors evenly distributed throughout the plumage, with melanistic coloring in the self’s. There are three feather types, non-frosted, frosted, or mosaic (dimorphic) and they can be crested or non-crested

Care and feeding stafford canary birds

Stafford Canary birds for sale|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.
They do like to bath, so should be offered a bird bath. Cage cleaning and toe nail trimming is about all the maintenance canaries need.

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.
