Crested Canary


Species group:
 Canaries

Other name(s): Crest-bred Canary

Scientific name: Serinus canaria domesticus

Appearance

Details: The Crested Canary is one of the oldest of the type canaries, that is, canaries that are bred to conform to a certain look instead of a special song. Birds that express the beautiful crest are called Crested Canaries, while birds that carry the gene for the crest but don't have a crest themselves, are more properly called the Crest-bred Canary. To produce strong babies, if one parent is a Crested Canary, the other parent should always be a smooth-headed Crest-bred Canary. There are other varieties of crested canaries available, so ask your breeder for the full name of the bird you have purchased. True Crested Canaries tend to be quite large on average, compared to their close relative, the popular crested Gloster Canary.
