Product Description

Identification:  The Yorkshire Canary is a favorite of canary fanciers throughout the world. It has been bred to have a large chest and shoulders, narrow waist and rigid, erect stance. Because it is well over 6 inches in length, a larger cage than normal is required. Canaries were first bred in captivity in the 17th century. They were brought over by Spanish sailors to Europe. This bird became expensive and fashionable to breeding in courts of Spanish and English kings. Monks started breeding them and only sold the males (which sing). This kept the birds in short supply and drove the price up. Eventually Italians obtained hens and were able to breed the birds themselves. This made them very popular and resulted in many breeds arising and the birds being bred all over Europe. 

Life Span: 10 to 15 years.

Diet: Canary seed, Dried Egg Food, Mineral Grit, Millet, Cuttlefish Bone
