Hello everyone. Today I have a few minutes of free time and I want to use these minutes chatting with you. First, I want thank you all, from of the bottom of my heart for all the private e-mails from many parts of the world, wishing me well and a fast recovery. I hope! I really miss my birds in New Jersey! I would like to be there during the best time of the year, the breeding season! However, I am on phone with my people that take care of my bird room as much as I can. The breeding program for 2007 without any doubt would be much more successful!

By taking good care and most of all providing the necessary nutritious foods, and following the programs of feeding to the letter, success can be easily achieved. My people are the best, and they are doing all that they can to take good care of the birds in my bird room, however, when I'm there the chores are more effective and more fruitful as well. There is an old saying in Italian. "L'occhio del padrone ingrassa in Cavallo. More or less translated "The eye of the owner is fatting the horse?"

My helpers are very dedicated, especially Rosa who not only feeds the birds everyday, seven days a week, but also is responsible for packing and shipping. (She gets paid well for doing good jobs). She tries very hard to fulfill the chores very responsibly. I must confess if it weren't for Rosa's dedication in the last five years of my ordeals, it would be the end of my long bird breeding activity.

In the last several days I have been reading as much of your postings that I could. From memory, I try to express my seventy-three cents of my thoughts on several topics. For Mr. Jerry Salomon of Canada, in this world of ours, there are many different sizes of men and women. Per example, a tall person like me married a very short woman. Together we had four wonderful children, all of pretty good size, all in good health, thank God for that! European Goldfinches are available in various sizes accordingly to the region of their habitat. All the European Goldfinches, large and small, are all the same and breed well together regardless of their size. Are you getting the point, Mr. Salomon?

In 1976, I asked a color bred judge that came to judge our show in New Jersey to legally bring a couple of European Goldfinches from Sicily. In those days I had couple of the larger size European Goldfinches imported from Northern Europe. I purchased these larger birds in the 60's from a huge Pet Shop in New York City. Well, to make a long story short, I have been breeding these birds, large and small, for decades now, and I may add, with excellent results. I have a small number of European Goldfinches in different sizes. The smaller size European Goldfinches breed better and survives better in North America. Are you are getting the point Mr. Salomon?

With much dismay, I read Ms. Kathleen's experience with a breeder that insists on selling her a proven pair of Canaries and Ms. Kathleen wound up with a pair of females. Ultimately, she had to purchase the singing canary that she really wanted from a Pet Shop. She should have insisted on getting her money back for the dishonest so call bird fancier? Shame, shame!

Ms. Kathleen, as Joy cat stated, do not get discouraged because of one bad individual. The overwhelming majority of the bird fanciers that I know are very honest and sincere bird fanciers. However, always be careful who you deal with. A friend of mine purchased some birds from a pet shop here in Naples. About ten days later some of the birds got sick and died. He returned to the shop with his receipt, and without any question, he got his money back.

Many decades ago, when I just was starting out with Canaries, I never was fooled by any so called champions and never paid their outrageous prices. I always purchased healthy birds not from champions stock (BS). In many cases I purchased very older birds dumped to pet shops by the so-called champion, and with patience and TLC I established a good, strong breeding stock. As far as I'm concerned, when you get $50 or $75 for color bred Canaries, a Gloster, a Border fancy or any other similar bird, you are paying the right price; and for this price, you should be getting one quality bird. Of course, the Pet Shop should be able to get the better price on the above mentioned. Take into consideration that they pay more or less of the above price for each bird. Pet Shops and bird stores have very high overhead expenses to deal with, they are in business to make a decent profit.

Remembering a few years ago, some very greedy breeders or dealers were selling Spanish Timbrados male Canaries for $400.00 each? Not anymore, Timbrados Canaries breed and reproduce themselves better than Cockroaches. Why such high prices? Well, I know of some individuals that import some of these birds from Spain, they pay more than $100 per bird, just for the transportation and quarantine alone. Now a lot of people produce Timbrados by the hundreds all over the world. I saw Timbrados, males and females, for sale in the Reggio Emilia, Italy show for less than $5.00 each. Friends, the fire doesn't last very long! Getting the point?

My good friend Jon in Florida, you don't have to pay a lot of money for breeding stock. In my personal experiences for many decades, I learned that so-called Champion birds in many cases don't produce a good exhibition. Furthermore, I am asking who are these judges that award these champion breeders. What is their credential? Are they professional breeders of the species that they judge or did they just keep a couple pairs of Society Finches some time ago and now they are judging Colorbred canaries? Professionally speaking, I have seen year after year high cost judges from far away places performing a very poor evaluation judging job on all the of the birds. I will give an example of the score sheet of a high scoring color bred Canary in one show somewhere in the world. This particular bird had a total of 94 points on the score sheet. Wow! On the score sheet the very last category was IMPRESSION: 5 points. That judge gave only 2 points for impression. Actually, that judge had a very bad impression for that 94-point bird! How can it be? Scenario #2: A really bad bird, in the same show, scored a total of 87 points, that same judge this time gave the bad specimen 5 for impression. I personally confronted this judge and I asked why he had such irregularity in the score sheet? He didn't like that I questioned his poor performances, he replied to me, "This is the way it is done." I reminded him that I was the one that helped establish the Colorbred Canaries Score Sheet and judging standard guidelines and indicated the contrary of his poor judging performance. Well, let's leave it as that! Judging performance as such as above has created a lot of false champions! I again repeat, don't let the champions fool you!

I know of sincere fanciers that pay $200.00 each for Canaries, such birds didn't even produce bird good enough to be sold to pet shops for house pets.

If you breed for example Greens, Bronzes, Browns and other dark canaries, unless you produce show quality, even many pet shops will not take your surplus. You are better off pairing let's say a poor quality Bronze to a poor quality Red Orange Lipchrome, or Green to Yellow frost or no frost. The offspring that you produce from these pairings and others similar pairings will be highly accepted by pet shops and you at least recover some of the cost for seed and other expenses that occurs in the bird room.

Some fanciers are talking about getting and insisting on obtaining a pedigree of the birds they purchase. A pedigree for what? How can you prove that the pedigree given is correct and true? The best way to create your own breeding stock is to keep an accurate record of your breeding season and when you know for sure the record characteristics of your birds, perhaps you can pass your records on to other fellow fanciers? In the photo album of the Abba Group you will find a sample of the records pairing of your birds. Also, you can find the same paring sample records in the Abba photo album @ www.abbaseed.com <http://www.abbaseed.com/> , click on Photo Album to view it.

For those fellow fanciers that are just like me and have not started the breeding program. If you wish, you may want to go to Post #3185 of March 18, 2005 in the Abba group. There is the whole list of the practical pairing of the Melanin colorbred Canaries. You can follow the guidelines and you can produce excellent exhibition birds that you can take pride in exhibiting. Try to pair frost to non-frost for a better feather structure. The Lipchrome colorbred Canaries are simple to pair. Yellow, Dominant white, Recessive White, Red Orange should be paired frost to non-frost, the results are simple. The aim is to produce good feather structure and good color that is achieved by feeding the birds the right food and supplements. Dry seed alone will not produce good color yellows or reds. For the reds the proper doses of color enhancer must be supplied in the beginning at day 7 after the young Red Orange Ground Canaries hatched, whether Lipchrome or melanin.
