Wa State Show & Young Bird Derby

Recommended Posts

Congrats nubbly on the awards, especially the Lacewings :thumbs_up: I remember the Grey it was a really solid bird. You've done well to get such a young bird to the show and win.

It was a very tiring day ^_^
They always are aren't they. But well worth it.

 

Kaz, any chance of ID'ing any of the people shown in your pics as I'd guess none of us on this side of the country would know many by face.

Thanks Daryl!

 

I was just disappointed that Holy Sh*t dropped his tails as he would have given it a good shake I think (but you never do know I guess).

 

But there were some super birds there including a few Nationals placegetters and some young birds that should do well at the selections too. Was a really solid turnout of quality birds. Great to see for such a small zone as ours.

Gee Kaz how do you like that I thought Cec Gearing was a real old bloke you know about 70 plus, gosh I don't know where I got that from. He looks like he could be younger than me. Thanks for the pics now I have an idea what they look like, instead of guessing :)

All I can say is that I'm absolutely knackered!!!!!!!!!!The G&G stud managed best Lacewing in Yound Bird Derby and best Lacewing in Adult State Show, plus a commended (and best Grey) in the Derby with the nice young grey in shown in my breeding journal (not Holy Sh*t who had dropped his tail or Holy Cr*p who has not yet fully moulted out yet - the other one). Happy about the commended considering he is a 4 1/2 month old bird. A couple others too, best clearwing in the state show (adults), and best BES in the Derby (youngs).We just managed to get home to settle the birds back into the aviary before it got dark too - bonus!
Congrats Nubbly :D

Heeheehee he holds his age well - he is actually 80-something! But I know Brenda looks after him well with a very healthy lifestyle and he keeps pretty active.

Talk about marked cages,some with seed,

no seed a D cup, is this to save on seed or

to make it easyer to sweep up,after the show.

If so should't it be a standard across all cages,

No seed or seed or paper in the bottem

of the cage,its a bit hit & miss,by the look of it. :(
