I used to have canaries and finches many years ago. I no longer
breed them. I had American Singers and Border canaries. I have
hookbills at this point in time.
If you're just starting out, you might want to consider getting
divided breeding cages for your birds. When canaries beging the
breeding cycle which is now through the Spring, they often times
do not get along. The hen needs her alone space for
constructing her nest and then the male can be introduced. The
divided cage is essential for harmony between the pairs.
Canaries can be aggressive between male/female pairs aa well as
males fighting amongst themselves.
Good luck with your new hobby.
