breeding reds and red ivories

Post  David McCool on Wed Jan 06 2010, 17:09

In this section we will be discussing the breeding outcome from red / red ivory.

what we would expect to get from from these pairings.
this will be directed towards the new comer to the fany to keep them on the right tracks regarding breeding colour canaries.

All you input is very welcome.
results from birds you have paired, some times the text book is not always what it reads.

Ilook forward to your posts, remember it will be set as a guide for all to learn from.

Thanks Davy

So the hens are either Ivory or Red no hidden genes.

I have a carrier cock that I will be using next year please god. 08 Int red var, from very good line of Ivorys.
I have 5 non int Ivory hens + 1 Int Ivory cock.
Hopefully some nice Birds to chose from for the show season.

cheers dave, would you use the best coloured red that you have available or would you use a more diluted bird so as not to 'redden' the ivory too much

Red Ivory originate from red so it is the best bird to improve it.
