Description

Description

Description: Fife Fancy Canaries for sale, (Serinus canaria domesticus) also called the Fife Canary, is a lively, delightful canary that is very popular because it is so easy to keep. The Fife canary is a type canary, bred for its physical appearance rather than for its color or song. It is a smaller version of the border canary and is available in a wide variety of colors ( yellow variegated and green). The male has a very pleasasnt song and Fife Canaries tend to be ready breeders who also take good care of their young. Despite its small size, the Fife canary is full of energy and personality and is very endearing. They are not prone to disease, come in all the canary colors, and the male has a wonderful pleasant song. 

Geography: The Fife Fancy Canary was developed in the 1950's in and around the county of Fife in Scotland.

Size / Weight: 4"

Sexing: Mono-morphic (visually difficult to determine sex.) DNA testing at The Finch Farm is available to ensure desired gender. 

Temperament: They are good-natured social creatures that do well when kept in cages or in aviaries. However, The Fife Fancy Canaries are timid birds 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. Fife Fancy Canaries like to bathe daily. Their environment should not be wet, cool or drafty, and if they are given space to sunbathe, they should also have a shaded area to protect from too much sun. Keep perches clean to avoid any foot problems. They prefer swings for entertainment. 

Breeding: The Fife Fancy Canary is a ready breeder making it a good choice for a beginner. Most canaries breed easily and readily if provided with quality food, lighting, secure surroundings, and conditioning. Breeding season for most canaries is usually from December to April.

Lifespan: 10 years.

Diet: Canary SeedDried Egg FoodCuttlefish BoneMineral Grit, veggies and fruits and Australian Blend Goldenfeast. 

DNA Testing  Note: If a DNA test is selected by a customer to determine gender of a bird, a charge of $99.00 is charged per test, and the results may take 3-6 plus weeks for results.

* If there is not a gender option listed for this bird on our website, that particular species is 'monomorphic,' which means we’re unable to determine gender without DNA testing. If you want us to do our best without DNA testing, make a note in the comment section of your order letting us know your preference. If no DNA testing is ordered, we are unable to guarantee a preferred gender but will do our best. See our FAQs for more info.

Yellow Fife Canary

This little guy is of good color. Nice round head with centered eyes, and compact body.Good pink feet and medium length legs. Wings not quiet folded but not drooping. Young yet trying to sing. Hope it is a he. I think it is a keeper.

The Fantastic Fife

II'm addicted to canaries but have a real passion for the little Fife. My little one arrived here in tip top shape. She easily came out of the travel box into her new home with no fears. By the first evening she was even checking me out a bit, going to the side of her cage where I was standing. She's an active little girl but a bit more demure than some of the larger canaries. However, she's BIG in personality! Very sweet. And I've had no problem getting her to eat healthy foods besides her seed. So far she's enjoyed apples, kale, brocolli sprouts, summer squash, butternut squash and brocolli crowns. I couldn't be more pleased with her and she is an example of what I love about the Fife canary.
