On following pages, you will find my notes about keeping and breeding the canaries birds. Some of them are my own observations, my own experiences and advices which I got from older breeders during my first years of breeding canaries, which was long before internet era.
I quote many recipes for seeds and egg mixtures, mostly the recipes, which I was using all my life and which I "inherited" from the coal miners in Silesia. The canaries breeding hobby was very popular in Silesia, on both sides of the German-Polish border. At that time, a canary in a small cage, was one of the most important warning device against the gas danger. So, it should be no surprise, that the miners were breeding them with a lot of care and true love for their tiny feathered friends.
I quote also some recipes and advices, which I collected on the many web pages. I collected those internet recipes and hints for several years. I collected also many pictures and some of them are on following pages. In majority of cases I don't know the origin of the pictures. I was collecting them for my own use and pleasure. But now, as I am publishing them on the internet, I am trying to establish origin of them and will give an acknowledgement whenever it is possible. In many cases, I will be unable to establish the source. If the original owner of the picture will recognize his or her bird, please e-mail me and I shall make a proper tribute or remove the picture if requested.
