Yep I have a lot of larger perches in the aviary and it does seem that these promote even more lazy use of that little toe, causing it to slip even more forward. My preference now (if I had it over again) would be to have all natural branches including all the little sticks as the birds seem to get much better exercise of that toe by gripping onto tiny branches. The only issue I have with these are the little sticks sometimes hang birds up the the leg ring but hanging them pointing down has fixed that problem.

No change yet and by the sound of things there may never be a change.

 

As long as your showcage conforms to the current standard you will be fine.

Well done Mr Devil!!

 

Pipped you by one - got 8 going for a plane ride. Will see what happens.

 

Spoke to the guy who runs the BCV trade table - did not sell any 16mm perches but had sold a few 12mm.

 

Some gossip - we hear Tassie are talking about a "handicap" system for the Nations due to the dominance of NSW and Vic. What a joke.

 

Best of luck next weekend.

 

Cheers

 

PT

We conducted our selection show yesterday and none of us noticed ANY issues with the perches either way really. The bigger perches didn't seem to promote toes forward anymore than the smaller ones (we made an effort to look closely at this as we went around). Just an interesting aside.

We have been encouraged to purchase the larger perches and not knowing the politics and being novices in the exhibition world we have done just that. At least half our show cages now have 16mm perches. It will be disappointing and frustrating if they go back and we have to just throw them away......

My first State show and I have 3 birds going to Nats :)

WHAT???? Dr Zhivargo or the Nats..................? Hmmmm not sure what I'd choose ;)

 

Good luck everyone. It's getting close now!

 

For me it's even more exciting having birds in and NOT being there. Just imagining all the prep work going on and everyone flying in to the event and how the birds will go..... oooooooh all exciting!

I've not seen a show cage for a while but I was sure the dowel rods are just screwed in from the back. Can't the dowel be changed to the different size?

Thanks Jeff! The competition wasn't that tough this year though and the proof will be in the pudding at the Nats as it always is for little old WA! Sorry but not being in the IN crowd anymore and not having ANY results read out at the selections I'm not sure how many of yours are going..... Good luck with yours too.

 

I enjoyed the judging as well - definitely found myself on your side re: that nice danish pied grey - would have liked to have seen it on the bench just to SEE what the outcome would have been.

 

Kaz for me:

 

1 green

1 blue

1 grey

3 BES

3 lacewing

1 clearwing

1 hen

 

 

in the name of G&G House

11 birds!!!! Wow, congratulations on that, what an effort. Also congrats to the other BBC members who had birds selected. I'll be keeping an eye on Luke's site (National feed) to see how the weekend unfolds, like many here I suspect that aren't going this year.

well guys i have as predicted no birds in the nats but...... i did actually get a stroke when my albino hen placed 8th at shields OMG

 

i just want to say that the team looked good from what i saw

but i was kind of oblivious to most the day

 

will be watching with close eyes at classes 15,21,6 im not much of a crest fan but was very impressed with the choice going

the lacewings as im interested in what i need top do to keep up with the Jone's so to speak

and lutes well theirs a bird i am quiet interested to see where it places

 

i want to say a big congrats to the people whom made their states team

and good luck to you all ........ **** that virus is back :blush:
