The Roller Canary, also called the German Roller Canary or the Hartz Mountain Roller Canary, has been highly prized for hundreds of years for its beautiful song. It is one of the older and best known of the canary breeds. Not only does it have a great song but is also quite good at mimicry. So for birds that will be entered into shows great care must be taken that they learn the proper songs. In the past to train a Roller Canary to sing, a young Roller Canary male bird just past its first moult was kept near an adult male with a perfect song, called the ‘schoolmaster’. The youngster would hear and learn from the repetitive singing of the adult. Today this training is mostly done by using recordings.
