    I purchased 2 Glosters Canaries, 1 crested, the other is not. How can I tell which is the male?

    Thank You

    To the fella with the gloster canaries....A crested should be bred to an uncrested - corona to crested). Corona or crested does not have anything to do with male or female. Now the hard part - just because it does or does not have a crest, it has nothing to do with being a male or a female. With or without the crest, it can be a male or a female. It is diffult to determine the sex - without DNA sexing. That said, usually the top of males head is flater than the females head. The female usually has a roundeness to the top of the head while the male head is flatter. I am also told that usually female Canaries have 3 evenly lengthed toes, while middle toe of male Canaries is usually longer than the two outside toes. Males are a little more colorful and they are the ones who are doing the singing. Females chirp.
    Good luck. Most breeders would be pretty accurate at determining male/female.

We have just started keeping colored canaries and we are not sure how to add color food to their diet. Are you able to give us some information please? Many thanks, Mary

    Colored canaries and the vibrant color came through genetis and also when breeders realized that certain foods would deepen or augment the color of their canaries. This was especially true of the red canary. Most enthusiasts will recommend "color feeding". Color feeding is just feeding foods to enhance color, and this method is used with yellow and rose ground colors, as well as reds.
    Berries, beets, sweet potatoes, squashes, tomatoes, and cherries contain carotenoids which enhance color. Red and orange can also be increased in many breeds by simply adding cayenne pepper and paprika to the diet. Experts recommend using a carotenoid concentrate to bring out the potential in your red canary's plumage. Have fun and enjoy.

    Hi, Mary There are 2 ways in which to add coloring to your canaries food both have too be administered carefully. 1 is too purchase a color agent called caropyhll red which is added too the water. 2 is too buy red factor food from haiths .com www.haiths.com. These are specialists in bird foods. You can find this food under the subtitle color foods. 3 if you go on line to www.superpets-online.co.uk and put food colouring or quiko they have it as well. From the looks of your canary you want the red but be carefull if you feed too much you get what we call the burn effect where the colour is 2 deep. color food is given during the molt from around August-September. Some food coloring has too be added too a soft food made for birds called soft food. Again haiths sells this too called either emp or cede. I use cede. Good Luck

My mother has a male red factor canary. For the last six months the canary started to tear up the bottom of his cage and hiding in the corner under the water dish. When we would check on him he would just open his beak. This week we bought a little nest and he actually is nesting in the nest. Is this a normal action for these birds?

    These little guys like a safe and quiet spot to hang out in. A nest works. It is normal.

    Hello Ron
    I'm making a radio program about singing birds including Roller Canaries. Would it be possible to contact you about your experience with the Roller?
    Best wishes,
