OIRCC Roller Canary Forum:

The Roller Canary Forum is published by the Oakland International Roller Canary Club to improve the advancement, breeding, and exhibition of German Roller Canaries. Hopefully it will encourage the promotion of the fancy and instruct our members who are not able to attend our regular monthly meetings. The opinions of the writers do not necessarily reflect the opinions of the Club nor its officers. We encourage all members and readers to feel free to send in comments, questions, and any articles they would like to see printed. Judges, Master Breeders, Champion, Amateur, and Novice Breeders of Roller Canaries are cordially asked to contribute articles for publication. Please send us your ideas, articles, questions, comments, or criticism about the content provided in our Web site and in our Roller Canary Forum to jpagrella@comcast.net.   (He is our editor).

The material shown in this web site may not necessarily reflect the views of the Club Officers or members of the Club. We want to provide a non-judgmental vehicle for free expression of individual views and experiences in the Roller Canary fancy. We may learn from information with which we may disagree. There are many ways to raise Canaries that work, some better than others. The bottom line is to enjoy the birds as we work to produce the healthiest and most pleasant sounding birds we can. We encourage your questions and comments.
