Layers Of Difficulty

Recommended Posts

Well I'm going to get this ball rolling by saying that -

 

Pet Budgie Owners - want healthy happy budgie companions

 

Pet Bird Breeders - want healthy happy budgies that breed

 

Back Yard Show Budgie Breeders - want healthy happy Show budgies that are Variety bred

 

Show Budgie Breeders - want healthy happy Show budgies that are Variety bred to the current Style

 

What do you think?

:celebrate:

 

.... and here is an example of what I want:

Daniel Lutolf's Spangle Grey Best of show Best youngbird 111-125-08

Show Budgie Breeders - want healthy happy Show budgies that are Variety bred to the current Style

 

everyone has their own style ren

their is no differences in show breeders you either breed for show or you dont

some achive the look you like but they are very disciplined breeders and have set plan

they are very strickt with what stays and what comes in

 

good luck with your archiving of this style

 

i recon a few hair extensions on some the birds would get you their quiet quickly :fear

 

 

i couldnt get the picture of look im after but its here in budgie world

the violet when you scroll down page

i love the stance and his face fetchers

he is a well balanced bird with swank

Renee, I reckon Daryl's birds look like that. Anyone agree?

Yeah, I know! Actually I believe this bird is bred to the UK Standard, the Australian Standard calls for a longer bird, maybe add an inch or two.

 

It's hard to find a picture of the "ideal" budgie as many photos don't show the whole bird .... Kaz, do you have full frontal photo of Bob Smith's Blue boy?

 

I can't seem to download this year's 09 winning birds 'cause they are pdf format ... Kaz?

Geez Richo, I hope you don't mean me! I can only dream of breeding birds like that at the moment. You mean Daz?

Ahhhhh THAT's what I'm talking about!

For those of us who were lucky to see this bird in the flesh in 2008 ..... well to say it was an eye opener is an understatement!

renee you would be able to archive that if the violet hen that you sent me is anything to go by then

you must have a amount of very nice big hens

 

if you really put your mind set in one direction you could produce a bird like him you just need a long blowy cock to a hen like her and you would be on your way

 

oh ps the rec cock

he had a chick

he is split cinnamon to the /rec green hen

only one chick lived as being madden hen she did not feed the first few born early hours gave her a older chick and that night last bub hatched and was feed :hug: its not a rec pied but a lovely bird

Just noticed he has the key hole effect - drats! :hug: HOW are we going to cut that out???? Doesn't it seem most of our best birds have it? :)

Well GB that Violet hen IS one of the best that I bred in 07 but she is a psycho however, if anyone is going to get anything out of her it is you 'cause you have rare talent for looking after your birds. :)

 

I ask a lot from my birds, that have to show well, breed well and I don't like them napping during the day! B)

I KNOW! I saw that too ... I guess that is an example of how the goal post keep on moving ... it was only really last year and especially this year that I heard the term "the modern bird" and it was being used in relation to the rounded headed birds.

 

Here is an example of that Round Headed bird I have been talking about, not my bred, it is a Cec and Brenda Gearing bird I was lucky enough to buy earlier this year (sorry if the photo is blurry!)

This is not a keyhole effect! Keyhole is when you look at the bird from the front and they have no width at cere level (so in effect it's sillohette would look like a keyhole). The cinnamon grey bird has width behind the cere (width below his backskull so to speak) so he is not keyholed. What you are seeing is the lovely frontal and directional feather than makes them look like they have a little cotton ball stuck on their head. This is fine if the have the strength and width behind the cere to back it up.

Good one Nubbly! Thank you for that pick up :rofl: When back scull is present the so called key hole effect is reduced and you are left with a lovely bird!

Now I have to get some stewarding under my belt!!!! :wub:
