Orange-Cinnamon Canary And Siskin 2nd Cross

Orange-Cinnamon Canary And Siskin 2nd Cross

The deep orange coloring of this second cross hybrid was obtained from a fertile canary and siskin first cross that was mated back to canary stock carrying some cinnamon blood. The orange tint has little, if any, tendency to fade and is often as bright as that temporarily obtained through color feeding. In a second cross bird such as this, the siskin heritage is usually very noticeable in the song.
