The creation of Dolly the sheep in the 1990s was for many people the start of a new era: the age of genetically modified animals. However, the idea was not new for in the 1920s an amateur scientist, Hans Duncker, decided to genetically engineer a red canary. Though his experiments failed, they paved the way for others to succeed when it was recognised that the canary needed to be both a product of nature and nurture. This highly original narrative, of huge contemporary relevance, reveals how the obsession with turning the wild canary from green to red heralded the exciting but controversial developments in genetic manipulation.

    In the 1870s English canary breeders caused a scandal by feeding their Norwich canaries with red peppers to turn them orange. A German bird enthusiast, Hans Duncker tried to breed, rather than feed, to produce a red canary. This is the story of early attempts at genetic manipulation.
