         History and General of the German Harzer Roller Canary The history of the German Harzer Rollers began with the miners in Imst,Tyrol. Around 1822 Imst was destroyed by a fire mostly. This catastrophic fire decimated the canary breeding. The second reason was, that the silver vein in Imst made profit not enough. Many miners lost their workplace and migrated and found in St. Andreasberg, Harz Mountain a new home. Many miners were canary breeders and started with their remaining birds a new breeding in St. Andreasberg. The local population in and around St. Andreasberg began to be interested about the canaries and during the years they developed into a center and a stronghold of canary breeding. First, the canary has been bred in large numbers without taking into account the particularly vocal quality. But soon it was realized that could be achieved for a deep-rolling songster a higher price, because it sounds obvious to the human ear is more pleasant. This was a reason for that to breed a song canary, in which the song was placed on the rolling tours of singing a particular value set. The term "Harzer Roller" has its origin here. The Harzer Roller breeding in St. Andreas Berg became in the middle of the 19th century global celebrity. Over the next few years breeder centers were formed in Berlin, Hamburg, Nuernberg, Augsburg, Innsbruck, the Rhineland, Westphalia, Thuringia and not least in Silesia.
