Stafford Canary Club AL EXHIBITION


ound, Sunday 9th October 2011


The Stafford Canary Club are delighted to be associated with the National Exhibition Show hosted by the Parrot Society @ Staffordshire County Showground on Sunday 9th October 2011.


In the late 70’s a group of Staffordshire based fanciers held an informal meeting to discuss the possibility of creating a crested coloured canary with type. They were aware that at that time there was a crested coloured canary on the continent but felt this bird was devoid of type and did not sport the type of crest as seen on English crested birds. It was decided to try and produce a red or rose canary 5 inches in length with good type & perfect crests equal to any other English crested bird. Now after years of selective breeding good sized birds with even crests are being produced.


The first Stafford Canary was exhibited by Zoe Finn in 1987 at the Perry Hill Show in Birmingham. In 1998 the Stafford Canary Club was formed & was accepted as a new breed in 1990 by the Canary Council, the first new breed since the fife canary in the 1950’s.


In 1990 Dr Ahmed El Soussi was charged with the task of drawing a new pictorial standard of the breed, this pictorial standard is still used to do, an addition of a pictorial plain head bird drawn by Penny Berrill was added some years later.


In 1992 the Stafford Canary Club of America was formed by a group of American fanciers, today this clubs numbers exceed 70.
