The Report :bluebudgie:

This is always the spectical you shouldnt miss , that is if you live in the sydney area.

So 241 Lots after the scratchings , Total takings $ 102,370.00 thats an average of $424.78 per bird .

My opinion , Quality was down on previous years , but amongst them some top birds , I think the money was also down .

Unfortunately didnt get to buy any as the birds I picked out went over my $1000 limit which didnt really worry me as its good to see if you have your eye in when looking at the birds , must have expensive taste ;) .

The usual breeders names fetched the dollars whether they were good birds or not , there was special interest in Bob Smiths birds which I liked Lot 133 a standout bird and went for $2100 also Lot 68 a Gearing bird $1300

The top sale Lot 221 a Smith bird went for $2600

It goes to show if you win a National you can get the bucks.

If anyone wants a price on a particular bird , PM me .
