I have mentioned of the Exhibition Budgerigar Forum in previous post on this website and it is a great place for information and great articles written by very knowledgeable people. Occasionally l contribute or ask a question on the forum, one of the members namely Mike Chase is very similar to myself in that we have both come back into the hobby after number of years away.
Mike’s blog on the forum has a good following and we have had a number of pm’s (private messages) on a number subjects comments on various post’s by both of us has me believing we are very similar in our views on the hobby and how it is run. I have never met Mike in person but through the forum it appears we have a challenge about to start during this years show season. For me l have never achieved anything with my birds but my birds are getting better, Mike was Best Beginner at a couple of his local shows last year so the scene is set l will be taking some birds to the Notts & Derby show later in the year to challenge Mike and hopefully have a laugh.
The image of the Cinnamon barhead is the image posted on the forum which started all of this, a number comments were received regarding the Lutino in the background, this lutino hen has some real style and l have watched this bird develop, her brother is also a nice bird. Unfortunately l have lost both parents of the birds but hopefully l will able to develop my lutino line and these birds should compliment my development.
