    i moved one of my male canaries to his own cage after i realized none of them werent singing. he was in a cage with another male and two hens. i want to move the other male so he will sing, but have no room in my room for another cage. if i put the other male in the cage with the first male will he sing too?

    Sorry to say that putting the two males together will not make them sing, as one will be dominate over the other. You would be better putting one of the hens, one with each male or see about what you can do about getting another cage. Because you have females already, the males may get aggressive with each competing for the girls. If you can figure out a way to have the 3 cages put the girls between the two males. They will then compete with each other singing to the girls.
