2016 Breeding Season has started!

The 2016 breeding season has started. We have a few fifes that have been born but nothing else. We hope to see a lot more activity in the next coming weeks. I'm hoping hitting around 100 babies this year. I scaled back some so I can focus more on the birds and so I can have more free time. 

2015 show season

This 2015 show season was good. I enjoyed seeing all of my friends I have not seen in a while and enjoyed making new ones. This is a recap of the shows I went to. 

At the 2015 Suncoast canary and finch show I took the Best Yorkshire and Judges special from Barbara Rosario with my Fife canary. 

At the 2015 South Florida Bird Breeders Association I took Best Fife from judge Regina McCarthy. 

At the 2015 Colorbred Canary Club of Miami I had only class winners with judge Robert Larochelle.

At the 2015 Florida Canary Fanciers Show I took Best Bird in show with my Border canary and third overall place in show with my Fife canary with judge Armando Lee. 

Thank you to all those people who have helped me ths year. I wish you all a good breeding season and see you next show season!

Saturday December 13th was the Florida Canary Fanciers Bird Show. I took best Fife and Best Yorkshire! It was a well put together show. There were so many different varieties of birds it was amazing! Linda Hogan was the judge. You can go to her blog at She was very nice and really knows a lot about canaries. Overall it was a great show. Show season is now over. Now we have to start getting ready for the breeding season. Good luck to everyone out there. I'll be posting a short video with pictures from the show shortly. 

2014 Colorbred Canary Club of Miami show

Today I took 4th place in show with a Yorkshire. I thought my birds were really better than what the judge thought. We have to respect the decision but I think my birds were really good. I'll take them to Orlando at the Florida Canary Fanciers next week to see how they do.

Breeding Season over

This years breeding season is over. A lot of fifes but not too much of anything else. Very few Yorkshires. Very few Glosters. No Borders or Norwich! Some years are great and others are bad. Oh well.
