The Kyabram Diploma Show


Recommended Posts

Hi all today was our club show, The Kyabram Diploma Show.

I had a great day.

I won best Adult cock in Intermediate with a DF spangle and best Adult hen in Intermediate with a double factor hen. (brother and sister) The cock went onto to win best Adult in Show and then he went onto to win Grand Champion in Show. I was totally blown away, couldn't believe it.

I won 3 show cages with the new fronts and perches and a few drinkers and mason jar feeders and jars plus my beautiful sashes.

I also won the raffle again, I won a wire flight cage with all the accessories.

Boy did I have a great day all totally unexpected.

I didn't do very well with my young birds but I new I wouldn't. I am hoping for next year with my young. I also have some interest in people wanting to buy some good birds and pay top dollar, so it is all happening.

I am on cloud nine at the moment.

Thanks Gb it was a super day.

I will see what I can do about pics tomorrow, the flight cage is just one of those wire breeding cages but I will take a photo for you.

I have NO birds for sale at the moment I told them I will see what I breed this year but it was still nice to be asked.

Hi Macka, nice to see you here, Hey I am on 15 points already, just from 2 shows, so I only need 15 more points to go into open but i don't want them because I am not ready for open yet, it is very hard. I think I would like to stay in Intermediate for a year or 2, but I guess we will see what happens, I think I might retired that bird now. He has shined and I don't think he could do much better.

Sorry Gb didn't have time to take photos today but will try tomorrow. I thought I would let my boy have a days rest before annoying him again, he is such a gentleman.

I don't know about that Hilly, i think I have been just plain lucky, when Greg bought me some birds for my birthday a few years ago and the they just seemed to click with a hen I had here. That's where it all started to go right which was my second year of breeding.

I have to keep it up now, really hard.

Thanks Gb, well do have done well to, winning a show cage and wine and platter.

I noticed that some clubs like the Riverina only give ribbons for op sex once you get to Intermediate, beginners get a trophy for all.

Have never got anything for Reserve either, just a little blue or red round sticker saying reserve.

Hey last week I won the raffle at Riverina, it was groceries so I took them around to my son, him and his family were happy with them.

Funny I hardly ever win the raffle and I have won it 2 weeks in a row. cool.

 

The bird bath, lol I think Brad uses them for soft food. Good for veges though.
