Wow the pictures of the birds were stunning.

I was amazed to see the BIG names in show birds not doing as well as I expected.

Maybe it's because most people now have there blood lines in there stock and the gap between them and the average breeder has closed sum?

Well done to all who represented there state.

And congratulations to NSW.

Just wondering what sort of prices the National Auction birds fetched? In particular the Chidel Grey Greens and the Kakoschke Pieds. Thanks.

Fantastic, thanks PJI. It's good to put prices to the pics. Pretty hard to get a cheapie at the Nats but I reckon a few of those prices were fair for what they are.

It will be disappointing and frustrating if they go back and we have to just throw them away......

 

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?

 

That is exactly right, but when you have 40 show cages and pay $1.50 a pair for the perches only to have to throw them away.........well I know its not big money, but its a total waste of money. Cant do anything with the useless new perches if thats the way it goes.

Just back from Nationals , what a great time with good people and great birds . Not sure if anyone knew "Bubbles" but Im sure quite a few remember the 3 lads from Newcastle NSW , we weren't exactly on the quiet side and did sink a few home made ones .

Dont know if I met anyone from the site but there were a few from WA sitting next to us on day 1 Chris Huck and wife and the younger Gearings .

Day 2 judging and Auction saw us around Barry Prang from South Qld as well as Mr Peffer and is wife both of who were are ? South Qld members but now working and living in Orange so as you can see people were from anywhere and everywhere , altogether they melded into one social and happy group with something for everyone and everyone eager to help one another. Great to be a part of .

How did the Auction birds look ?

Would you say value for money or did people spend too much.

Did you snag a few yourself or not enough home made ones on day 2 ?

The Auction prices are listed above , as for how they looked Id have liked to take any of the pairs home , on the auction listing on the BSNSW site there are pictures as well as breeding . The birds looked even better in life than in the catalogue , with some to rival the birds that won at the Nationals (Yes that good) down to just very good stock birds . All prices were over the top for me , but in saying that I belive that there were some bargains amoungst them , some went for near 3000 for the pair down to 400 and these were birds worth it if you had the money , I didnt .

In saying that we went to a Breeders (Mario Capasso) aviary and were blown away with quality of his stock , he was open to offers (how he operates) and must of said yes to many as there were a lot of birds being held in his sold cage , 16 going back to WA on Monday night after we left and their quality was as high as or better than some of the National birds at prices less than the auction birds . The better the bird the higher the prices but others from the same family just not as visually stunning were much cheaper .

 

In summary the auction birds were of national quality for their type but at the National auction you pay a premium price , I feel equal or better bird could be gotten from breeders direct and their advice is gold , so I would deal direct with the breeder if possible .

Thanks for the rundown Bubbles, great report. :D

I saw the pictures and even though they looked good it was still hard to judge.

So it's good to get a run down on the birds by someone who was there.

My White DF Spangle hen is one of Mario's birds that I bought. She is, one of the best of my flock. I love her to bits - brilliant mother and ever so gentle with me. I'd love to get more of his birds if I could!
