    Florida Canary Fanciers website

    I wanted to share my clubs website address again. We have done a lot of work and are very proud of it. We have also added a section on type bird standards. We added this so people could see all the types of canary's and what the standards are that define them. Like a dog breed, which would have a written standard to define what it should look like, birds have these as well. There is also show catalog PDF's so you can click on them and se what the show looks like and all of the canaries and finches in it. Like again a dog show, which has judging starting with breeds only to come up with the best of a breed, then the best of that breed competes in a group of dogs to get the best in that group, lastly then the best of the groups go up to compete for best in show, the birds follow a similar process. In birds you must win you class first, then breed/section, then division, then best in show. I know we discuss health aspects mostly here but I wanted anyone interested in seeing the other side of show world. It's not for everyone, but for the most serious of us, who just love birds, we work very hard to try and breed the very best there can be. The truest example of what a specific type of bird it may be. This is also why we stress so hard to seek out true show breeders, NOT breeders if one wishes to get a bird. Breeders just breed to sell most of the time, Show exhibitors breed the highest quality, to do anything but breed the healthiest and best defeats what they are after, which is the best. Go to

    Thanks Rudi! I really loved looking through the pictures of the show birds on this site. They are all such beautiful little birds. I did join the facebook group last time you posted a link here and get to see some of the birds on it at times as well.
    Fly Free Boomer, we will forever love you.

    The President and Secretary/Newsletter editor are really growing the FB page. Those ladies are tops. The show pictures crack me up, I'm still on there when I won Best in Show. That was a good year. I had 4 of my birds win top bird of each of their breeds, so when you have 4 birds on the Best In Show bench going up against 24 total best in breeds, the odds are very good. I won with a great Irish Fancy, but the Parisians shown I thought would really win best in. There was a two great birds, a fife from Miami and a Gloster from GA that were excellent. This years shows are just starting, and I have a great Irish Fancy who is actually the grand son of the winner of that bird I won Best in Show with. He's got a busy year coming up. 3 shows in FL and the Nationals outside of Chicago.

    Think about that, if anyone wishes, go to Irishfancycanary.com and look at the website. You'll learn about the Irish fancy Canary, but there is a tab for pairing birds for breeding on it that is the best I have ever seen. It applies to all birds and feathering. If someone ever questioned what two bird to put together for best results color wise and health wise it shows which ones to pair together. There is no other site that states it that plainly. Most go into full genetic lists and why's, this one just says, if you have bird X pair it two bird Y. It also has some definitions that people may find interesting. Anyway just another great site for info.

    Not too many Canaries in San Francisci,Ca. When I was growingup, there were a lot more of them here. My mother had a best friend, and she always had a couplecanaries at her place. I would like to see more Canaries. They are an attractive species.t

    Re: Florida Canary Fanciers website

    There are some great clubs and breeders in CA. Look around for clubs and inquire. I know of at least 6 of the top breeders/show exhibitors I run into at the Nationals are from out there. Even the top person who does seminars at the Nationals and other shows on artificial insemination lives in CA, She actually works and leads this program within the avian staff for the San Diego Zoo. I'm heavy in show time right now but will find the names of those clubs most of these people are in and post it sometime later, meaning a few weeks maybe.

    Bill, My clubs show went off great and funny thing is the President of the San Diego Canary Club, was the Colorbred Lipochrome Judge. David Benitez. He's a highly respected Colorbred judge and Canary person. Their website is:
    http://sandiegocanaryclub.com/

    Anyway, My Parisian Frill did win best Frill but the best in show went to a fantastic Irish Fancy, 2nd to a great Fife and 3rd to a really nice Gloster Corona. There were fantastic colorbred's as well but I am a type person so am awaiting the names and winners from that group. The top finch went to an amazing Blue Dacnis Male. Look the breed up, their amazingly beautiful. Finches 2nd place was a Florida Fancy Zebra Male (Yes their is a mutation called a Florida Fancy) and 3rd went to a very nice shaft tail with a great Forbes Parrot Finch after that.
