Post: Only the white ones get tossed!

    My canaries have raised several clutches, but always the
    same problem: if the chick has a patch of white down on
    any part of its body it gets tossed from the nest! WHY do
    they only raise solid green or red melanin chicks without
    white or yellow patches?? Can anything be done to
    temporarily color the down and thereby "fool" the parent
    birds into raising the chick?
