Gloster Canaries were bred to be small, short and stubby — no longer than 4 3/4 inches, and come in many colour variations including: green, yellow, cinnamon and white. Fairly easy to bred, there are two types of glosters plainhead and crested. The birds will need a good balanced diet to promote good health of plain canary as well as a good mixed canary seed. Give them grit and fresh water also green food and as a treat a piece of apple. They like a bath every other day. Ideal birds for an avery or keeping in a shed in cages for selective breeding also as a pet indoors as a song bird.
