How old are Glouster Canaries when they grow their mop? I keep looking at my 2yr old, thinking it's top feathers are growing, but it could be my imagination.

    They acieve their mop when they achieve sexual maturity.  However, it is the Gloster Corona that achieves the crest (mop).  The gloster does not.

    My friend this is developed at a very young age , when the chicks are in the nest you will be able to tell the difference between the Corona chicks and the consort. The consort has the plain head. Hope this helps you. Kind regards, Andrew.

    I think a mistake is in breeding two consorts instead of one consort and one corona.

    For LK : You have to be more patient in raising walnuts, because I often run into things like that. I think you should find out why your canary chicks can die? What cage or because of its nutritional? Possible because of your bird cage hygiene, but if you ask me, you should adjust your walnuts parent nutrition in order to be ready for breeding... sorry I only give what I learned from my experience

    Dear Breeders, having bred the Gloster canary for 25years and exhibiting as a champion breeder would like to answer some of your questions, i.e. in the case of the death of the chicks, breeding consort to consort would not have caused this in any way, there are many reasons why the chicks died always check for red mite, always clean green foods, i have had many chicks die over the years and never come to the cause, get to know your good feeders then you could possibly foster chicks out,. i once had a corona cock bird that would feed any chick that called for food. spend time in your birdroom and get to know the better mothers etc., i also used a radio that was left on all day this gets the young female birds used to noise and can prevent them from sitting tight, Having made the move to Germany i also need to purchase some stock may i suggest looking for local bird shows or even going to the N,E,C in Birmingham they have a really good sales class of all types of cage and aviary birds, if i can be of any further help just send me a email, Kind regards Andrew

I have a green wing macaw, she is great, loving and playful friendly to me and my wife (not to many others). She has picked up a new habit of taking her food dishes out of their placement in the cage and dropping them on the floor, this was not too often at first, however now it is many times a day.. hard to feed and water her when she won't leave the dishes alone. The way she gets them out of their holders is very smart. Does anyone have any ideas? PS new pird in the house, however she was doing this before the African grey came in.

    Sounds like she's keeping you on your toes in the creative area... have you tried dishes that mount from the outside? Many bird farms will carry a variety of different types of dishes, also your local pet store that deals in large birds would be able to help you come up with options. Good luck:)

My nanaday had a problem with feather picking . By the time we noticed it, she had managed to pick her chest completely bare. She spent 24 hrs on an IV at the vets. And 10 days on L-10 treatment. Her eating habits never did change, and now she acts like she never was ill.

BUT her chest area still has no feathers on it, where she had plucked it down to the skin. I have put her on vitamins, hoping that would help. She no longer is plucking, but I was wondering if there is anything more I could be doing to promote feather growth for her?

Thank you.

    A parrots feathers will usually grow back over time after being pulled out. There are several suggestions others have used to help. A Nutritional supplement many praise is called Featheriffic which has lecithin, B vitamins, flax, and amino acids to help grow feathers back. Many use it along with a product called Avicalm, which contains L-theanine and green tea and is good for general stress control. Alone or together, they can be sprinkled on the food. If your parrot won't eat the food with these on it, a somewhat less beneficial alternative is adding them to the water bowl.

Hi, I have a yellow sided, blue Conure. He was hand fed and is very tame. He is a busy little bird and talks up a storm. I think he is small for a conure but he is the greatest! One thing that is different about him from other Conurs is his tail...it is a beautiful creamy beige and is shaped like a fan. I havn't seen a tail like his on any other bird. Is this unusual?

    It sounds like you have a captive bred mutation, so the tail would be a result of its mixed parentage. It's siblings may have a similar tail.

I am worried that my GCC Spaz has over bonded with me. Is there any way I can curb his/her enthusiasm? It feels like the poor little guy can't live it's life unless it's with me. I love paying attention to him/her, I even have had the joy of teaching Spaz to eat with a fork, wave, and am currently trying to get him/her to dunk a basket ball. Spaz lets me hold him/her and play with its wings and feet. I feel Spaz trusts me, but I don't want it to be infatuated with me. Any feedback would be appreciated.

    Birds are extremely social, and these are flock animals. Right now it sounds like you are his only companion, and the only other member of his flock. You could consider getting another bird and enlarge the 'flock', and it can even be a different type of parrot. However make sure you get a separate cage for it as Spaz will be quite jealous at first... and Spaz's cage is his safe place and home. It can take time for birds to adjust to changes of this type to their habitat, so you will need to be patient and loving with both. The results can make the effort well worth it though, as birds will generally get comfortable with each other, and that can help reduce the amount of attention required by you.
