    Identification of Red & Red Ivory Lipochrome

    Post  Red devil on Tue May 17 2011, 08:44

    What I will try and do here is post as many different Red Lipochrome section canary's that I can find.

    So what gives a canary the crudentials to be in the clear section ????
    Well any bird that has at least one clear feather.

    Why you may ask ???
    In the melanin section if a bird has one clear feather and the judge spot's it then the bird is disqualified and will take no part in the class nor will it be placed in the class.


    Here we have "Clear Intensive Red Lipochrome" cocks



    Here we have a "Intensive Varigated Red" In the UK we have classes that you can enter Varigated birds, these birds can be any thing from having a odd melanin feather [dark colouring in a feather] some where on the body to only having a clear feather some where on the body.





    Here we have a "Clear Non-intensive Red Lipochrome" cock



    Here we have a "Non-intensive Varigated Red"One of the things you need to remember that the difference between a ticked and a varigated is the number of feathers with melanin, for a ticked bird the mark must be able to be covered with a penny piece in one area if there is a clear divide between the melanin mark then it would be classed as variegated.









    In this part of the section I will look at Red Ivory and please note that Red Ivory is a sex linked mutaion of Red.

    Here we have a "Clear Intensive Red Ivory" cock suggested matings would be a Non-intensive Red or Red Ivory hen.
    What to expect from matings.
    Intensive Red Ivory cock X Non-intensive Red Ivory hen = chicks produce could be of either feather type [intensive / non-intensive] and all Red Ivory.
    Intensive Red Ivory cock X Non-intensive Redhen = chicks produced could be either feather type and all hens produced will be Red Ivory and the cocks will be Red carrying Ivory.
    With this pairing you get the chance to sex the chicks in their nest feathers.





    Here we have a "Clear Non-intensive Red Ivory" cocksuggested matings would be a Intensive Red or Red Ivory hen.

    Here we have a "Intensive Varigated Red Ivory" once again at the other extreme a lightly varigated bird not the best picture and current Red Ivories probably have a deeper lipochrome colour.





    Here we have "Intensive Red Ivory Rubino"
    You should be able to see this bird has Red Eye's




    Here we have "Non-intensive Red Ivory Rubino"
    Here again you should be able to see the Red Eye's

    In this section we have Red and Red Ivory Mosaic Lipochrome canary's.

    Coloured canary's is the only type of canary which has three recognised feather type's.
    In this section I will post the third feather type known as Mosaic's.

    Here we have a "Clear Red Mosaic" cock Type 2


    Here we have a "Clear Red Mosaic" hen Type 1




    Here we have "Clear Red Ivory Mosaic"





    Here we have "Mosaic Red Ivory Rubino" Cock.
    These birds get their name from the fact they have Red Eye's

    Please remember that the colour of the birds in some of the photographs may look a little strange this is down to a few reason
    Background colour of the photo
    The light settings on the camera
    The reproduction hasn't quite got the colour correct.


    The photo's I have used was the best I could find at the time To represent the colour type when I made this sticky.
