Okay thanks so much!! Glad to know they are both buff! I’m not sure if they’re frosted or not - I don’t really nothing anything about canary colors and types! All I know is that they are mixed breed.Clairecanary15 wrote:Hi Flight FeathersFlight Feathers wrote: Here’s another pic of my canaries, this time with both of them in the pic. They are a mixture of brighter and lighter colors. Not really just one color.
They are both buff or as Sheather said "soft feather". It is easier to see on the 2nd lot of pictures. They don't sit still do they for an easy picture
They do not have the richness of colour of a yellow feather type. They look frosted; are they frosted?
Can I say how cute they both are. Are they a pair? Do they have eggs?
I have 1 hen with 3 independent chicks; same hen with 4 new hatch-lings and another hen who's chicks left the nest today - wow its all very exciting. Wish I could spend all day with them - very relaxing to watch.
When I 1st sat on my stool I popped the treat on my lap and almost crossed my arms - tucking my hands away - mine didnt and still don't like hands. I also diverted my eyes to start with - sort of look at whats on the horizon. Wear long sleeves too - they like to land on clothing or ones head. They like long hair - they tug it lol. They don't land on my bare arms - maybe something to do with getting a good grip,
Oh thank you!! Yes they are a pair. They don’t have eggs currently as it’s out of season now but they did have two clutches in summer. The first clutch hatched 4 babies but sadly they went splat on the floor not long after - terrible nest building on the canaries part. I didn’t want to shift them tho in case I disturbed them! and the second clutch fried in the shell before it had a chance to hatch.
Wow you have lots of canary breeding going on at the moment! It must be so exciting having so many canary Chicks!!
Okay thank you so much!! I will definitley have to give that a go!
