Description

Description

Description: The Lizard canary (Serinus canaria domesticus), is named and especially bred for its beautiful markings - the black crescent-shaped spots running down its back and breast and resemble the scales of a lizard. This visual effect is known as "spangling". The Lizard Canary finch gradually loses this lizard-like pattern with each annual molt. Foundation colors can range from gold, yellow, white, natural buff and orange or red tones for these lizard canary birds for sale.

Though never extremely popular in Europe they were in no danger of disappearing, until the 1900's. Severely threatened with the advent of two world wars along with disease epidemics, their numbers were reduced to about only 40 birds. In 1945 the Lizard Canary Association of Great Britain was formed with the intent of re-establishing these birds, serious breeders selling birds only to other serious breeders. Today the Lizard Canary thrives and is one of most popular type of canaries available. Their coloring ranges from white to yellow to orange.

Geography: The Lizard Canary originated in France in the 1700's.

Size: 5.5 inches in height

Song/Call:

Temperament: 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.

Breeding: Lizard canaries tend to be good breeders. The female will lay 3 to 6 eggs, one per day. It is best to allow a hen to have only two clutches a year. Breeders will normally breed a full-cap / (clear cap or no cap) Lizard Canary to a broken-cap.

Diet: We suggest our very nutritious Canary SeedAustralian Blend Goldenfeastcuttlebone supplement for calcium, and dried egg meal. During molting season your canary may enjoy carrots and broccoli to enhance coloring. 

DNA Testing 

If there is no gender option listed for a bird on our website, that particular species is 'monomorphic', which means we’re unable to determine gender without purchasing DNA testing. DNA testing is an additional $149 per bird to guarantee preferred gender. DNA testing may add an additional 3-6 plus weeks to estimated delivery time to allow for gender results. See our FAQs for more info.
