I just found this community...I hope you guys are still active :) I got Jerome and Rosette about two months ago. I had looked into birds for some time before deciding on canaries. I found these two on Craigslist, they were being rehomed. They're red factors that haven't been kept up on their color feeding.
I never would have thought canaries could steal your heart like these two have, mine! I put curtains up to block the doors to my office and they have free flight each day. They really enjoy it.
