Ross Loats Sale

Recommended Posts

I just got home from visiting some friends and they went to the auction, they told me that the birds were outstanding, never seen birds so good from one breeder.

They said they couldn't believe it that bidding starting at $500. with lacewings, they said every top breeder in Vic was there buying so that says a lot.

They bought a couple of lutinos but the one he wanted went for over a thousand.

So it sounded like it was a top auction.

Oh my friends had a great day out they said very enjoyable. I wished that I didn't have to work because I would of went to, but wouldn't of enough money to buy what I wanted.

 

 

Obviously todays friends have a better "eye" for a budgie than yesterday's friends!!! Hence the complete turn around from "poor quality birds" to "birds were outstanding"................. LMAO

Shows you should always use your own being there experience and your own eye and judgement and not rely on others. We all look for differing things based on what features we need to buy in to our flocks and we base it also on what we see in our own birds at home. You cant rely on someone else's say so in most cases.

As far as i know it was not a consortium and no it wasnt me but two people one is a rentry into the hobby As nobody was invited to get on board (Sour grapes on my behalf) but thanks for the feedback TAZ D t

My frinds told me that there was a bloke from Tasmania there buying for others from Tasmania and he was buying up big, he was getting a headache trying to keep track of everyones orders and how they had spent and how much they had left.

They said that there were that many people there and that had bought that the line to pick the birds up was huge.

So maybe Kochy you can come over and buy from one one day too.

That is true Splatt,there was a consortium from Tassie & they brought

a line of good budgies,to take back to Tassie.It will interesting,

to see the Tassie National Team next year,to see how they went with

there breeding.

okay Heath, learnt my lesson, no need to say anymore, some people see things different than others,

It's all my fault. I just shouldn't of commented on something I knew nothing about and put no thought into what I was saying.

Taz, I don't have my catalogue with me I gave it to another Budgie bloke to look

at.But I would think, the Tassie buyer,was well healed,if he was covering the cost

himself.Good luck to him then.I would think he should be able to breed,a good Budgie

from what he brought.As I said,will see what comes out of Tassie,for the National

next year here at Geelong.

If it's who I think it is, then he had very good budgies before,and can easily cover the cost by himself.

Yes will be interesting to see what emerges.

 

 

Taz,

I heard there are 2 past breeders returning to the hobby up your neck of the woods.

Will be good for the club up there with the extra members.

Hey Mr Devil,

 

As the auctioneer I have a pretty good idea who purchased what. Bidder number 5 (no names) purchased 10 birds - mainly cinnamons, violets and rec pieds. Buyer number 6 purchased 18 birds mainly cinnamons, normals, Lutes & lacewings.

 

Don't feel at liberty to say too much more. Maybe best to talk to those involved if you know them.

 

Cheers

 

PT
