Grey Cinnamon Opaline Hen, she has a lovely head, but she is on the small side and she hasn't a lot of weight on her so I might scratch her yet.

The spangle and the sky are really big birds the sky the biggest.

 

I can't take this fella, the light green spangles brother, he was plucked on the back of the head by in the breeding cage and now has pin feathers

All 3 got in but there were many birds there , like no competition. But my sky and green spangle were the pick of the birds at the selection and by far the biggest birds there. The sky is bigger than some of my adult birds.

I think there were only about 20 birds in our team, Kyabram will come last on points but at least we have a team.

There were a few good birds there but there were also some not so good birds. But they are all going. I could of took more and they would of being selected but I need to keep my reputation up LOL, Like I have a violet cock but at this stage very ordinary but much better than the other blues that are going but I don't want anyone seeing **** birds from me after I have won the shield with his grandfather a violet as a young bird and this violet just doesn't have that wow factor like his grandfather.

So I am happy to go with the 3 but I might pull out the cinn op yet if she doesn't hold her weight.

Yes Dave will let you all know how I go. I just hope I place in the top 10 that would be great, even top 20 would be good too. They don't like to perch though, the hen is the only one that will behave herself.

Dan actually the light green spangle is the best, he has the lost above the head at this stage. then hen does too but she is smaller, but next year she will be a handy outcross for my DF spangles.

The grey cin op hen has a wonderful head, a real Watson/Mannes head but she

is smaller than the others. The day I took the photo she was great but she has lost weight since

then.So she probably won't go.

Hey Macka i counted the birds and there are only 14 going lol, 3 members had birds because most members birds were to old or to young, I only had the 3. I am scratching the hen. Unless she picks up by the Friday.

I am hoping to Renee but not getting my hopes up to much because there are better birds out there, at the shield we are against Victoria's top breeders, you know the Champion breeders.

And the spangle class is a very strong class as is the blue so I am not expecting much, but in the top ten would be wonderful.

Oh Tch Tch! You've been up against these Champion Breeders before and done very well. wink.gif And you will be up against them in the future .... imagine they are all walking around in their underwear and their budgies are not perching laugh.gif

 

 

 

From the photos I've seen I still like the Light Green boy best, I'll be very interested to know how they both place.

There will be a report after Sunday. Mine won't perch either, will have to take desperate steps tomorrow to encourage them to perch because I am running out of time.
