Overall Judges Comments:

I would like to thank everyone who entered the online Poultry Show as I know that taking photos of the birds can be a time consuming exercise.
Before I comment further on the entries I must thank you all for your patience, it has taken longer to get this done than I would of liked but we have had a couple of unexpected issues arise that I had to sort out along the way and the latest one our move from Singleton to Dubbo. Believe me it is harder than you think to move 900 birds and their cages. The furniture was the easy bit.
Anyway we are sort of settled in now. I must say the quality of the birds overall was high, I was very impressed with the Indians, the Saxony ducks and Blue Swedish ducks. I noticed in the overall presentation of the birds that a lot of the birds required beak trimming, if you are not sure on how to trim a beak, contact your nearest poultry club and someone from the club will assist with this. I also saw in the photos curled toes; just watch for this especially in the standards.

The Silkies were missing centre toe feather which is very important when it is a requirement to the breed, however the pullets had fantastic pom poms if the owner was to continue on with these birds I would suggest that they find a male with good centre toe feather to breed from, it may take a couple of seasons to breed out this fault but you could achieve it if you stuck with it.

I would like to make a comment on the Indians: when looking at the pictures of both the Bantam and Standard birds of this breed I found no difference in size comparing their size to the drink can. It may be the photo has caused them to look that way.

The Saxony Ducks especially the females were lovely, they are a credit to the owner/s,
and they have a good eye for quality.
I also thought that the Blue Sweedish were worth mentioning and once again a credit to their owner/s.

In any black bird purple barring is a no no, however I would not discard the bird until after the first moult, if the purple barring continues then I would not breed from this bird. The aim is to have a beautiful green sheen in the black feather.

To the Ancona breeder/s the overall type was not bad, I would just aim to achieve the tipping on the tail and the wing feathers when breeding these birds in the future.

It was good to see a big line up of Muscovies, all though still young they are all showing promise and of good stock.

I very much enjoyed the opportunity to judge the on line show.

Based on traffic lights, colours are awarded as follows:

Green indicates that the exhibit is considered show quality (those that, with good management and preparation, could do well in an exhibition)

Orange indicates breed quality (those that are reasonably true to standard and, with good management, should breed better quality stock)

Red indicates garden stock. Birds with one or more faults according to breed standard, but good birds to have in the garden or pets.

A big thanks to Mel and the judge and all who entered.

Thankyou to all involved in running and judging the show :thumbs: , it was good to see it well supported with a lot of entries this time round.
I'm greatful we don't have to do follow up photos of what they look like now, because mine would be unrecognizable :yipee:
