Kaz, what were the prices like? I heard big money for Gazzard and Ault birds. Were there some more affordable ones?

I think the dearest bird was $3100 lot 65 gazzard.

lot 37 clint ault went for $2750

Fellows birds went pretty high in price too. There were bargains to be had as well even in the top breeders birds.

i got a chidel grey spangle lot 16 for $320 (pictured in catalogue )

My favourite would be a light green op spangle cock of Allan Reid I bought ...lot 142 and Rob bought a relative of it. Both great birds. I bought two clearwings for Ron Minn and a fallow split for Gina.

We have all the prices recorded.

15 birds for me :)

Pictures will have to wait ( at least mine anyway ) till I get back to W.A.

 

 

Having a laugh here with GB.......she's one really funny gal. What a sense of humour. We led each other astray with the birds and meeting the bigwigs of the breeding fraternity.

This is Lot 74. She is bred by Mark Chidel. She is now mine. I plan to use her to my Clearbodies.

Nice purchase Jeff, I hope she won't only see clearbodies, as she looks like an excellent outcross for other varieties as well, particularly normals. Cheers Clearwing

lol to die for ..... yep almost :P;):(:ph34r::unsure:

 

my fav was the green spangle you talk of

i also really liked a spangle grey hen breed by gary gazard i almost brought her but realized although not top blood lines i have a hen here exactly same actually bigger but could mistake their face if i swapped them over ...so just before i put it up from 220 i reneged and decided not to

after all i need to put birds up here soon for sale sorting them through now over next month

besides im happy with the df spangles i brought from spang also want to thank him for the gift i received :)

your birds were delivered to the airport at 5.30 am , now waiting for their flight to perth.

i left them in the garage over night with the lights on so they had a chance to eat and drink before being boxed up.

they all looked well before being boxed.
