Where do I show this Bird?

It's great to breed that winner get it ready for the show and then find out on the day that you entered him in the wrong section.

Happens at every show.

So how do you know where to show that Spangle Opaline Cinnamonwing Shyblue Hen.

... In the Blue class?
... in the Cinnamon class?
... in the Opaline Class?
... In the Spangle class? Yes

So can I show an Opaline Cinnamon in the Opaline Class ... yes! (for the nationals)

Some Association have there own rules on this one. In SQ (South Queensland) there is a different section for Opaline Cinnamons it's the Opaline ASV.

You can now download the Australian Standard from the ANBC Site.
The Standard - Updated
It doesn't have the pictorials which is only in the hard copy.
It does come with the current upgrades that all Club Members should have.

To decide were to put that bird, there is a matrix that we use.

Primary Colours

1. Normal Green Series which include Light Green, Dark Green, Olive and Grey Green
2. Normal Blue Series which include Sky, Cobalt, Mauve and Grey
3. Black Eyed Self
4. Red Eyed Self which is the Albino and Lutino .
5. Clearwing
6. Greywing
7. Cinnamonwing
8. Spangle Double Factor.

No Combinations of these Sections (1 - 8) are recognised.

9. Opaline but can have a combination of these sections. 3, 5, 6, 7
10. Clearbody But can have combinations of this section 9
11. Lacewing """" sections 9
12. Fallow """"""" sections 6, 9
13. Yellowface Blue """"" sections 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12
14. Spangle """""" Sections 6, 7, 9, 12, 13
15. Dominant Pied """" Section 6, 7, 9, 12, 13, 14
16. Danish Recessive Pied """" Sections 6, 7, 9, 12, ´13, 14
17 Any Other Standard Variety
18 Crested """"" 1, to 17 as above.

So I would place a Yellowface Opaline Skyblue hen ..... in section 13 Yellowface.

As said some regions have there own slight changes to the Sections and you have to be sure that you know them before entering. It is very disapointing geting wrong class with an outstanding bird...
