    Don't know what the white spot is but if they are on the bottom of the cage there is usually some sort of trouble.  I would place a heating pad on low wrapped in a towel on the bottom of the cage so he can get warmer if he needs to.  You could also put a litght on half the cage with a towle on the bottom.  If he isn't up and around by Monday, I would take him to a vet.  If he is fluffed up and not eating - I'd try and get him to a vet ass soon as possible.  Main thing right now is to make sure he can get to heat if he needs to.

    Feeding carrots can turn a orange one, dark orange but will not turn a yellow orange.  It may darken it but I am not postive.

    You can feed red beets and help to get nice orange color but you have to give some colorants like BOGHINA.

    Feed your Norwich the same color like BOGHINE, it is a suppliment wich you add to egg food.

Why does a canary gloster not want to sing? Because of the environment or the food? And how do I distinguish between a saplings canary gloster? Thanks.

    The Gloster Canary is known as a 'type canary' rather than a 'song canary'. This means it was bred for a characteristic other than singing. These canaries were developed for their physical appearance and plumage.  Here's a good article on these birds by Joe A Bracegirdle, History of the Gloster Canary .

    However, all canaries can sing and environment as well as diet can influence singing. Males tend to be better singers than females, as females may simply stop singing or sing intermittently. Males will have a greater tendency to sing if they are housed singly. To encourage singing, you can provide a song food available at pet stores. You can also  to help encourage them to sing by playing some classical music or you can get canary song tapes at a pet store.

    The Gloster Canary is not bred for song, but it will still sing. Most canaries will have a baby song at about 4 weeks, but the adult song usually starts in the fall. Then usually stop singing for a couple of months each summer while they are molting.

I think the redfactor canary is one of the most beautiful canaries. As I have kept them for over 40 years now they still catch my eye with their colour the only hing I have always disagreed on is the therory regarding the crossing of a fertile mule or hybrid to get the red colour. This as we should all be aware of, is not so. The red just like the yellow has been introduced by selective breeding. Just emagine if we bred fertile hybrids, we would never have a true species of birds or any animal in fact. No man can interfere once and breed a mule or hybrid but nature steps in and says thats enough. So the books would need to be rewrote properly again and remove that silly prank that hey put in years ago. So I hope the breeders keep up their good work as there are still so many colours we have yet to breed in the redfactors and newcoloured canaries.

    There is no way to breed selectively for red colour in the canary. Canaries have no red colour genes whatsoever. The standard green canary is the result of an optical illusion caused by the brown phaemelaanin and the black eumelanin over the yellow ground colour. Blue, which is really a slate colour, occurs when the yellow gene is switched of as the result of a mutation. The only red gene was the result of Duncker's work. Fertile hybrids do occur, but not often. Selective breeding for colour then went on from there, aided, of course by careful colour feeding.

My 6 yr old male canary is molting/picking his feathers; tail feathers,back and breast. He usually molts in the Spring. He gets fresh apple, brocolli and celery along with a variety of quality seeds daily. He still takes a bath daily. Any suggestions?

    You could try adding extra proteins, and maybe vitamins and minerals during this time as well. Egg food is a great protein source for canaries and finches.

I have a Red Factor Canary and I thought he didn't really need toys, as is stated on a previous posting. However, I felt sorry for him and bought him some toys, bell, mirrors, dangly toys and of course a swing. He loves his toys! And he is always on his swing looking in the big mirror on the wall where his cage is, and he sings all of the time because he thinks he is singing to the bird in the mirror. So, it has been my experiences that canaries do like to play with toys and they also like mirrors and sing to their own reflection. His name is Mango and he is one very happy little boy!
