Singing Canaries

American Singers

The American Singer was developed in the U.S. by eight women in the Boston area in the 1930s, and was officially recognized in 1942.  The "blueprint" for breeding is 2/3 Roller canary bloodline and 1/3 Border canary bloodline.

German Rollers This is an old breed of canary specifically developed for its song 

Waterslagers Originating in Belgium, the Waterslager has been a favourite among fanciers all over the world for hundreds of years.

Hybrids/"Mules" Mules are produced for their singing ability and are also exhibited at shows.  They are often a cross of a canary type with either the European Goldfinch or Green Finch. The overwhelming majority of these crosses are infertile, hence the term "mule."

 

 

Perhaps the most famous canaries of all, these are bred strictly for their song. Most are yellow, green, or variegated. Best known are the Rollers, Waterslagers, American Singers, and Timbrados
