    Do not put another adult male canary in the same cage. Canaries
    are not social like many other finches. Hearing another male in
    the distant will make your bird think there are other females
    around and he might start singing again. You might check his diet
    to make sure he's getting enough protien to get him singing again.
    Bee Pollen always gets mine going and even the song food diets they
    sell in the Pet Stores. Speaking of Pet Stores, some do house more
    than one canary in a cage but usually it's in a very large flight
    cage and they do get along better this way because they can find
    thier own space.
