ASC roster information is private and only given to members. However, many non-members ask for breeder recommendations, either to get started in the hobby, or to find a good quality pet. So, this Breeder Referral List was established as a voluntary way for ASC members who have received ASC bands to authorize contacting them about obtaining American Singer canaries. The webmaster cannot and will not give out any additional names, so please don't ask!
American Singer is a copyrighted name and only birds bred to the standards and banded with closed, registered American Singer bands can legally be called American Singers. Some members might also raise other breeds of canaries, so it is up to the buyer to verify that birds they purchase have the ASC band. It is recommended that the buyer visually verify the entire band number on the bird, and that number should also be on the receipt.
The American Singers Club, Inc. assumes no responsibilities for claims of its members, regarding either quality or health of their birds. This information is provided to the public for convenience, buyers and sellers assume all risks!
Please be considerate of people's time when you contact them. While some breeders love to talk about canaries for hours to total strangers who phone them, others do not. Some breeders who used to be on this list have requested to be removed because they were getting too many calls, many just asking for free advice and general information. Maybe one of them was near you! So, please limit your initial questions to whether they currently have birds available, or how to get on their waiting list. Then, simply ask if they have time to talk or are willing to answer more questions!
Since bird breeders tend to be morning people, it is best to call before 9 p.m. their time. Be aware of time zone differences if calling out of your area.
