Canary singing too much

We live in a condo and my wife is really ticked off by my canary singing.

Is there any way to make him sing less, short of giving him away?
There's a female in the same cage nesting.

He sings even if there's not too much light.
I don't mind his singing but clearly my wife does.

Thanks.

Unfortunately no there really isn't anything you can do short of finding it a new home. I bred canaries for years and years and in a few instances had the buyers return or exchange them for a female because the singing was too much particularly early in the morning. What type of canary is it btw.. some types are more prolific singers than others such as the American Singers I bred as compared to a Glouster

It's a Canary, that's what they do. I've owned birds all my life, all of them have either sang or talked (my parrots)

You got to be kidding me. Buy a song bird but now you want to squelch it?

I would have to agree with everybody here,canaries are song birds and they are meant to sing.Try talking to your wife or try making different arrangements at home so that you guys could sleep better and the bird can be free to sing at the same time. You could even make your rooms more sound proof.

I was curious what they sound like and I ended up coming across a ton of "training" videos on Youtube... Seems like people want to make their canaries better singers :)
