The Stafford Canary is primarily bred for color and conformation. The males have a free, wild, chopping song. The Stafford Canary was developed by crossing the Red Factor Canary with the Gloster Canary. I try to breed for different shades of red such as intensive red, red frost, mosiac, cinnamon, and bronze. However, because of the Gloster background, yellows and whites will occassionally appear. The Stafford Canary can also have a crest or corona. The crest and conformation come from a background of cross breeding Red Factor with Gloster canaries.
