American Singer Canary

Serinus canaria
American Singer Canary

In the mid 1930s, a group wanted a bird that had a louder voice than the German Roller. They decided that the appearance of the Scots Border canary was the best for their purpose. The Border, however, has a very loud, choppy song. The American Singer is about 2/3 Roller and 1/3 Border. Its song is sweet, not too loud, not too soft, pleasing to the ear, with plenty of variety. Only the male American Singer will sing so this makes sexing easy.

Care and Feeding:

Canaries are easily kept in good health on a diet of a high quality finch mix. Occasionally giving them spray millet and an eggfood mix will keep them healthy and give them extra energy. They will need an adequate supply of fresh, clean water changed at least every other day. A good rule of thumb is if the water does not look clean enough for you to drink then change it.

Breeding:

The hen lays 3 to 6 small eggs and generally the female takes care of the incubation duties. While a good male will help feed the female. The eggs hatch in approximately 12 to 14 days. The hatchlings have grey and brown colored down. The young birds fledge at approximately 16 days. The young birds should not be removed from their parents until they have been out of the nest at least four weeks.
