Tap nest box with finger, if you see some chicks with their head down and tail up that means they are a male (the females will just stare at you).

I got this info from www.avianweb.com (it is James Anagnos unique way of telling telling the gender of a canary)

*****DARREN'S COMMENTS*****
No offense intended but this sounds like just another old wives tale to me. The reason this method is "unique", and no one else uses it, is because IT DOESN'T WORK!

Try it if you like, you'll see that you'll get the gender correct about 50% of the time, which of course, my 3 year old daughter can do with her eyes closed.

Thanks for your comment.

That was an amazing discovery made on chicks.

I have no idea on how to differentiate the male and female one's. But the way it's been explained here is just amazing.

Love My Canary
by: Felter

Does this really work?

I mean I have already heard about this and tried it with my canaries, but they all just stare at me.

But I am pretty sure that I have male ones in them too.
