A reminder to all, breeders do not buy champion birds.  What we buy is stock birds.

Stock birds are where the next winning bird on the bench comes from. They are usually the sisters, brothers, cousins, etc..... of the birds that won his/her division or show.

You will hear the term "Buying Blood". It is considered that the genetic make up of the winning bird could also lie in its family. So hopefully, if you buy the offspring or related bird to the champion you might breed a champion too
