Are they red factors? 

They carry the gene but haven’t colour fed

Isabel mate, they both jumped first and one has died and I caught a quail after the other so I took the quail out and then I caught the dad attacking it so it's getting hand reared the last bit. He's fine with the darker chicks so the next round are getting swapped with a canary.

Birds only take the colour into the feather as the feather is being made so unless it's fed just before and during the moult you won't get a proper colouring..

Although they're just little brown birds that don't sing they are lovely little things aren't they. I need some unrelated isabels to pair these I've bred to as all mine are close bred now.

They are lovely little things I would be well proud of them gnipper, there is a man on a another web site who has bred canary x red hooded siskin's they look great. Got me sold on them to the extent I'm going to Newark on the 3rd to get me self a pair to put with my fife canary's next year. I keep a lot of Siberian bullfinch, and the fife canary's are a nice distraction, when things don't go to plan with them.
