Yorkshire Canary Species Profile
Traits:  The Yorkshire canary has been called “The Guardsman” and “The Gentleman of the Fancy” due to its proud stance and its diplomatic bearing. The Yorkshire canary is one of the largest and oldest breeds of canary. It is a type canary, bred for its physical appearance rather than its song. It was developed by crossing the common canary with the Lancashire, Norwich and Belgian canaries to add such qualities as length, improved color and feather quality, vigor and stance.

The Yorkshire Canary can have green, yellow, buff, cinnamon or white coloring. They are tall, slender and symmetrical and have a broad upper body, a narrow waist and a bold stance. This stance earned them the nickname “John Bull Canary.”

Behavior/Health Concerns:  Because it is larger than most canaries, the Yorkshire canary needs a larger cage than smaller size canaries, as well as a larger nest box. It will need somewhat more food than smaller canaries as well. It should not be housed together with parakeets, lovebirds or other hookbills that tend to be more aggressive. Additionally, males can be territorial and should be kept separately. 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.
