Showing Sumatra's

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I am new to showing birds and I wish to show my Sumatra's. I was told that to prepare them for show I should place them in 2ftx2ftx2ft cage to get them use to show. Because of my rooster long tail and the fact they are active birds will I need a bigger cage or will the 2ft one be enough room?

Most shows will not give you a larger cage unless you pay an extra fee to get a "double coop" but they can get costly. Most small coop/cages are maybe a little over a foot and the large/med ones are around 16 inches? (I suppose it could vary to where you're showing I suppose ;3 ) and yeah, most roosters do get their tails smooshed but I've never seen it effect the way the bird is judged because it doesn't usually permanently mess up the tail.

Willingly pay for a double coop. Some of our LF Rock and Red males are simply too large for a single as well.

 

Typical prices?  $4-$5 for single  $6-$8 for double.
