Parisian-Frilled Canary Species Profile
Traits:  Because the Parisian-frilled canary tends to be more high strung, they should not be housed together with parakeets, lovebirds or other hookbills that tend to be more aggressive. They like to bathe daily and should be given water to do so. Their environment should not be wet, cool or drafty, and if they are given space to sunbathe, they should also have a shaded area to protect from too much sun. Keep perches clean to avoid any foot problems.

Behavior/Health Concerns:  One look at the Parisian-frilled canary gives a clear idea as to why it is so named. All of the feathers on this bird (except for its tail and flight feathers) are frilled, including a “helmet” of feathers on its head, a “cap” on the forehead, a sideburn effect on its cheeks and a feathered collar. An unusual feature of this bird is that toes that can be twisted like corkscrews. The Parisian-frilled canary is a hardy, well-built bird. Several varieties of frilled canaries exist.

Although it is a type canary, bred for its physical appearance rather than its song, the Parisian-frilled canary is also a good singer. They tend to be more high strung and nervous than other canary breeds. It is one of the largest of all canary varieties. Show properties particular for the Parisian-frilled canary include feathering, type and elegance. They may be buff, green, clear, ticked or variegated and occasionally a few dominant whites.
