Description

Description

Description: The Domestic Canary, is a domesticated form of the wild canary, a small songbird in the finch family originating from the Macronesia Islands. Canaries were first bred in captivity in the 17th century. They were brought over by Spanish sailers to Europe. This bird became expensive and fashionable to breeding in courts of Spanish and English kings. The red-factor canary is an example of a color-bred canary, or a canary that is bred and prized for its color, rather than its song, although their song is beautiful as well! "Red Factor" refers to the gene that allows for red coloring which ranges from pale orange to bright red to bronze red in color. The Red Factor Canary was developed by Dr. Hans Duncker (a German Breeder) in the early 1900s by crossing a male red siskin with yellow canary. Some say the yellow canary was a German Roller, while others believe that its ancestor is a Border Canary. 

Color Variations: Red Factor Canaries can range in coloring from a soft pink, to an orange red, and also to a deep bronze red in coloring. All shades are pleasing to the eye.

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.

Red Canary

The wait was long about 5 months but, very happy! My bird is in good health and appears to be people friendly. Was very easy to handle, and place into my cage when I got the bird home. I did not have a gender test done, believe I have a girl. Her name is Scarlett. When I order next time I will order a gender test. I'll want a boy next time.

Great Canary!

I am very happy with the Red Factor Canary and all products purchased. The Canary arrived overnight and has adapted well to his new home.  He is singing after 2 days in our home. Thank you
