    A yellow canary is produced by genetics. Usually yellow is
    produced by mating two yellow birds together or a yellow to
    white.
    Although the color of some can be intensified by using a
    coloring agent. Cantaxanthin is used to turn birds red or
    orange. Zoos use this product to color the flamingo
