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.
