New to Canary Breeding

Post  dekspencer on Mon Mar 30 2015, 16:54

Hi my name is Derek. I have bred fifes many years ago. I want to start up again and have been fortunate enough to get a full 15 cage set up at a very resonable price. Only thing missing were the perches. I have 2 cocks which I believe are Red mosaic: formally known as dimorphic and one looks like a bronze cock. I only want to have a team of 3 pairs. So I am looking for 3 hens if anyone can help me. While I would like to show in 2 to 3 years time I need to visit a few shows to ascertain the standard required as I am brand new to coloured canary breeding.

Hi Derek,
Think you will find it hard finding hens at this time of year but you never know. I could help you out after the breeding season possibly.
I don't live to far away from you so just let me know. There are two shows at the Stafford show ground, The National and the Stafford & NW zone that you could go to and have a look round.
Good luck finding your hens. Very Happy

Tony.

Hi Derek, as Tony says I'm sure we'll be able to help after the breeding season. I don't have the varieties your looking for but I'm sure we can point you in the right direction.

Looking for hens

Thanks guys, thought that would be the case and thanks for the offer. I am in no hurry and don't want to buy birds just for the sake of breeding this year. will look forward to hearing from you when the breeding season is over.... Derek
