The Gloster Fancy canary is one of the smallest canary breeds and belongs to the classification of little smooth-feathered type canaries. Like all other crested canaries, the Gloster Fancy exist in both crested and plainhead forms. The crested Gloster is called Gloster Corona and the plainhead Gloster Consort. In contrast to one of the anchestor, the Crest canary, the plumage is of much finer quality. Also like all other crested canaries is the factor for the crested Gloster (Corona) autosomal dominant. This means that when you mating Gloster Corona x Gloster Corona occurs the Lethal-factor  and 25 % of the chicks will die. It is recommended the mating Gloster Corona x Gloster Consort  or Gloster Consort x Gloster Consort  (more about the results of the autosomal dominant inheritance...  read here >)  
The Body is compact with nicely rounded Chest
For the Gloster Corona and the Gloster Consort are set up for both seperate classifications on exhibitions. The main features are the crest of the Gloster Corona or the head of the Gloster consort, a rounded and compact form, the small size and the long and thick plumage, which makes the special form of this type canary. The Gloster Fancy canary are very easy to manage and has good parents characteristics. These features makes this bird very suitable as foster parents for many other type canaries with unreliable breeder characteristics. For the preparation for breeding  should be noted that such as almost of Type canaries the Gloster Fancy canary has a heavily feathered vent. To ensure fertile eggs you have to trim the vent feathers with a scissors. It is not difficult, but you have to watch that you don’t cut the ring of guide feathers immediately around the vent. This is important, because the bird needed it as a guide for mating.
