siskins are the easiest for a novice,linnets and redpolls are harder to breed as the cocks can be very hard on the hens,if the cocks are in high condition they will often destroy the eggs to drive the hens to nest again,if using any of these three pairings run a pair in a double breeder 3ft long 18 inches high 1ft deep put 2 nest pans in,supply plenty of nesting material and introduce an irish or fife hen

the canary hen will come into condition 1 month to 6 weeks before the british hen and the british cock will be proven by the time the british hen comes into condition,the side of the double breeder that the british hen is in can be camouflaged by attaching a couple of trimmings from a fir tree this will give the british hen a bit more security

Ive tried breeding bullies since I was a kid, never had much success with them, and in over 40 years Ive bred more bullie hybrids than straight bullies, as above, can be very, very fickle
