Show Results

Recommended Posts

Hey all I have attended 3 shows this month so far and my results are great.

Sorry no pics as camera is out of action.

BUT

I sent 2 birds to the adult shield early this month and I came 3rd Df spangle and 24th cinnamon.

Last Sunday Week I went to the Albury Diploma show and came home with best Adult bird with my Df spangle cock and reserve young cock withe my pied in beginners. My prize was a sash and 20kilos of seed which came in handy as I was low.

Today I went to the Riverina Diploma show at Barooga and I got best adult bird with my Df spangle cock, opp sex adult bird with my df spangle hen which are brother and sister in beginners and then I got best adult bird in show with the df spangle cock and opp sex bird in show with the df spangle hen. And I got DF spangle variety with my yellow Df spangle hen sister to the above.

I came home 4 sashes and 1 rossete and a belt sander a cordless drill, a toaster and an iron.

I also got 10 first places and I took along a bird with no tail because I wanted to see how he shaped up and he was judged and I was told by the judges he was the best bird there, I think they ment in beginners. He is a younger brother to the above birds.

So you can see I had a greta day and I have our club show this Saturday coming.

I didn't do very well with the young birds as I didn't breed many last year and the ones that I wanted to show lost their tails last week so I was really depressed over that but I still had a great time.

I will see if I can borrow a camera in the next couple of days and take some pics of my winners for you.

But hey Kaz you have the brother to these birds so I hope you can breed some winners too. :P

Thank you everyone, yep had a great day and Macka that would of being Geoff on the grape vine :P

Now I am going to focus on breeding.

Still sad though I stood on my best bird a light green spangle cock and I am feeling just horrorable BUT he is all good made a full recovery but can no longer fly. He was the one with no tail I took along yesterday.

I really don't know what birds to take to our club show on the weekend as I have shown them all twice and I really don't want to over do it. The df cock adult 3 three times. So now I have to decide what to do. BUT it is my last show for the adult birds.

Thanks Kaz and Gb but yesterday I put back in the aviary for the first time and it was that sad, he was trying hid hardest to fly, I sat him up on the perch and he went to fly off and splat into my hands. It's sad because it is my falt he can't fly.

 

Macka do you think I should take the DF spangle cock as he has been to 3 shows and if I did how long would I have to rest him before breeding.

 

Thank you Amy S it was a great result.

Splat if his condition is good and he is bright and happy there should be no reason not to take him. Many birds cope really well with showing and so long as you give him a few days to ensure he eats and drinks well there should be no reason why he should also not breed well.

 

You really just have to guage your birds. There are only one or two of my psycho birds that I would not show consistenly so long as there was a week or so between shows.

Thanks Nubbly, that means alot because I really didn't know what to do. He is looking great. I actually think he likes the show scene B) because he seems to show himself off and his sister is much the same, she looked great Sunday, I couldn't believe it was her.

I was told if I show him this week I would wear him out for breeding.

So really it is all up to me.

Overshowing good birds can take a toll on them healthwise. Its all about stress levels.

Yep pulled some of them out. I entered them all tonight but after thinking more I have decided not to show the ones that have been to Melbourne and a couple that have went to Albury, Some I was taking in turns so that means some can go Saturday.

BUT the adult cock is out even though he is looking great, doesn't looked stressed at all I have decided to pull him and his sister out and you know what they have done the 2 have paired up. Cheeky little things , brother sister I don't think so.

I actually feel better about my decison now as I was stressing over.

 

Oh yeh I have a fertile egg from my violet and a sky blue hen really excited. And my sky cinnamon spangle sister to the ones above and the one with the crook eye has come good, I have her down with a beautiful sky cock and they have 3 eggs but I can't tell if they are fertile yet, have my fingers crossed.

I have 10 pair down, 7 pair have eggs, 2 pair haven'y yet and one pair are foster parents for the sky spangles eggs but that back fired because they haven't taking yet.
