A very recent breed, the Italian Giant Curl, known to all with the diminutive of AGI, was recognized as a breed in 1995. This particular curled canary descends from the Milanese canary (a breed that has never obtained recognition).
This canary has created many difficulties for international judges, because in the years of its recognition it provoked several discussions among all breeders.
It is not a very easy breed to breed, since it does not reproduce very easily. It therefore remains a breed suitable only for experts in the sector.
