    A display usually consists of one cock bird....one hen....one cockerel...one pullet...and usually, one old trio...or one young trio of the same variety and breed.....I ONLY show displays when the Host show has awards for them.....

    Some shows do not have awards for displays....please check your show info before registering to see if they have monies/awards for displays..... to save you time and money.....

    Seeing as how I have never shown before, does this mean birds bred by you, or can they be birds you purchased?

    The judges won't know where you got your birds....I personally don't show other birds that people have bred....that's just me.....The judge judges whats in the cages....not it's history.

    Quote:If ABA/APA sancioned, you get more points for displays than for that same numer of birds in multiple varieties.

    Quote:Does not matter. Most shows require that you have owned the bird for at least a stated length of time.
