Meet Barry, a Gloster canary who looks adorable with his groovy haircut in a perfectly executed bowl cut. Believe it or not, he's an Instagram star with over 2,000 followers. Gloster canaries have a beautiful appearance and color, while also having a louder voice compared to other groups in the canary family. Gloster canaries originated in the Canary Islands, but are still not seen in the wild. Gloster canaries are the result of decades of selective breeding between the Border canary, Roller canary and Lesser canary. The birds can be seen with cute beetle haircuts and are not very social with people like parrots.
1 Gloster canaries are a select mixed breed.
Gloster canaries are small and very active members of the canary family. Their origin comes from the Canary Islands and the Azores. They will never be found in the wild because they are the result of selective breeding between the Border canary, Roller canary and small crested canary.
2 Corona canaries were discovered in 1925
There are 2 types of Canary: -Consorts (Canary Islands with a smooth head) and Coronas (with a crested head). They were first discovered and exhibited in the Crystal Palace exhibition in 1925. Barry is a fine example of a Corona canary here.
3 Their characteristic feature is a beetle haircut, just like Barry
The scientific the name of these canaries is Serinus canaria Domesticus. The female canaries are short-voiced but have sweet voices, while the males sing with a loud voice. Their voice and their "Beatles haircut" apparently make them sexier and easier to breed with.
4 Barry is one and a half years old
Gloster canaries have an estimated lifespan of 7-12 years. According to the owner, Barry himself is about a year and a half old. These birds are healthy, but they can suffer from ingrown feather abnormalities and should be prevented from breeding. Most conditions a canary usually suffers from are the result of an incorrect diet. This is why they should always get vitamin enriched seeds.
