The Fife Canary is one of the best singers you will find, but remember its only the cocks (boys) that sing.
The question is often asked -
Do you need to teach your bird to sing?
The simple answer is No, however if you are a breeder you need to keep a couple of good singing cocks around your young birds when they have left the nest, so that they will have something to copy.
Another question is -
My bird has stopped singing, What do I do?
Singers stop singing when they are moulting, which is in early Autumn and in most cases return to song after about 4-6 weeks. Sometimes he may not sing until the weather warms up, particularly when the climate is cold.
He will also stop singing if he is ill, so if the singing stops you may have a problem if its not moulting time.
