Norwich Canary Species Profile
Traits:  The Norwich canary, one of the oldest canary types developed in England, is often referred to as the John Bull canary because of its bullish appearance. It is a thickset bird with a big head and heavy brows. It is also a type canary, bred for its physical appearance rather than its song. Because of their larger size, they tend not to be as lively or agile as other canaries.

Available in both plainhead and crested versions, the Norwich canary is a broad, fluffy bird that comes in white, cinnamon, clear, and variegated varieties. Because they are larger than most canaries, they are not as agile and tend to have laid-back personalities. They are amicable pet birds. It can be hard to see their eyes because of their very heavy brows. Males of this variety tend to have a pleasing, robust song even though they are not bred for this.

Behavior/Health Concerns:  The Norwich canary does well in either cages or aviaries. They should not be housed together with parakeets, lovebirds or other hookbills that tend to be more aggressive. They like to bathe daily and should be given water to do so. Their environment should not be wet, cool or drafty, and if they are given space to sunbathe, they should also have a shaded area to protect from too much sun. Keep perches clean to avoid any foot problems.
