Origin: Northern France.
The origin of the Paris curl dates back to the mid-19th century. Some breeders who lived in the northern regions of France decided to select a new breed of canary that had greater size and greater volume than the plumage; they also decided to increase the curl. The selection started from the breed called here Northern Dutch times, which was subsequently crossed with the Northern Curl. After years of selection, these breeders were able to select the Parisian, which had its present form from the beginning of the 20th century. It is necessary to remember that to create the breed random anomalies were exploited, as in many other breeds, which were then fixed. Currently the curl of Paris, commonly called Parisian, it is considered the king of curled breeds.
FOI RING TYPE T ARTIFICIAL COLORING ALLOWED *
* N.B. Although all colors are allowed, only in Italy, there is the Paris class of color. In this class are generally enrolled those pure one-color subjects (white - orange - slate - brown) that do not show traces of other color suffusions. This is because the Italian judges, by now customary, evaluate the Parisian white more benevolently, for example, if exhibited in this class and not in the more generic one of Arricciato in Paris. In the latter class therefore, in Italy a white subject will never be exhibited.
