Type or Posture Canaries

The Type Canaries (or as they are known in mainland Europe, the Posture Canaries) are those domesticated canaries whose ancestors are the Wild Canaries (Serinus canaria) originating from the Canary Islands and Madeira.

They have been selectively bred over hundreds of years to achieve a specific form or posture and are usually identified from their region of origin. Hence we have names like the Yorkshire, Border, Gloster, Norwich, Gibber Italicus, Dutch Frill, Japanese Hoso and many more.

Exhibition Birds are more frequently housed and bred in cages but some breeders allow their birds access to an aviary flight between the breeding and show seasons. Their nutritional requirements are much the same as all other canaries and can all be found in Haith's Canary Mixes; renowned for their success in the breeding of many National Show winners.
