Cinnamon Inheritance in Canaries (Paperback)
This text contains a detailed treatise on color-breeding in canaries, concentrating on the cinnamon gene. Essentially a 'colour' variety, the ideal cinnamon canary is a rich, dark, glowing red brown in the yellow form and a subtle blend of pinky and softer browns in the buff form. While never being a popular variety, it has always attracted the connoisseur Fancier, who appreciates the richness and delicacy of its colouring. Chapters contained within this book include: 'The Cinnamon Canary', 'Reproduction', 'Inheritance of Characters', 'Sex Determination', 'Sex Linkage', 'Manifestation of Cinnamon', 'The Cinnamon Gene', 'Cinnamon Matings', 'Green Cock x Cinnamon Hen', 'Cinnamon Cock x Green Hen', 'Green Cock (Cinnamon Carrier) x Green Hen', et cetera. This text has been elected for modern republication due to its educational value, and is proudly republished here with a new introduction to aviculture.
