Canaries anyone ?

Does anyone keep any variaty of canary?
I used to keep borders.
I went to the stafford  show last week and was looking at the prices of the canaries, borders were fetching silly money £30 each for poor ones.
I came back with two pairs of fifes.
will put some pics upwhen I take some.

There are two breeders of Fifes in our village and Kaz and I are one of them. We have around ten of them and have managed to breed three this year and three the previous.

Are your birds caged or in an avairy~?

I used to keep 8 pair of Borders and bred approx 12 to 18 chicks a year.

I'm looking for a green ( yellow) fife hen if you know of one a good quality one.
So I can run the yellow cock with the cinnamon hen  and the cinnamon cock with a green and a varigated hen.

I'm sure that I can get you one, its just a matter of getting it to you.

Ours are in a small aviary that the boys and I made a few years ago. We are inundated with cinnamon hens at the moment . We have the mum and her two daughters.
