PREPARATION FOR EXHIBITIONS
Each designer has his way of preparing their canaries for exhibitions. I will not fujo rule, it is clear that if it had an attachment of the independent canaril, just to prepare my canaries for exhibitions, change some procedures. But as create a garage, and space is limited, the cages are the same to create, make changes and also to prepare them for the exhibition. It is not easy to make champions with these conditions, but each one has to adapt to its environment, doing what you think is the best for their canaries. My canaril is aimed to the north, and the natural light almost zero, and will match 2 factors negative for the creation, become positive at the time of the change (the less light picagens best to avoid, and with a constant temperature). Normally create with 80 females, only 40 have nurseries of creation, ready to become in 20 small fly box or in 80 cages of exposure, depending on the time of year. In addition to the nurseries have 24 fly box of 120x50x50, divided in half can transform them in 48 nurseries at the time of reproduction. Obviously, if you could have a space for the creation, another for the changes and one for the preparation for the exhibition. So much conversation, just to say that we all have good conditions to take canaries for exhibitions. Once you leave the nest, since some pups that stand out, and perhaps they should be starting to give a little more attention, (just here can separate those who believe that prior to being the best). During the change, I have separated the males from females, in addition to get these divided by race, to avoid picagens. After finishing the changes, first, I make a selection, I am taking the fly box who I understand are those that are better able to take the exhibition, which has the meantime had more or less separately by race and quality still on voadeiras (meto between 10 and 15 canaries in each fly box). To choose them with the best of each breed in a cage, and illuminated so that can be observed with good conditions. My criterion of choice is simple: shape, size, lipochrome, and in my case also the mosaic and melanin , As I am choosing, I putting one in each half, nursery, (my have 64 cm, 32 cm with divided am ) should be in cages of exposure some 45 days before the exhibition, should continue to administer dye at least days yes day not. I give every day will last until the exhibition season. Who does not feel able to choose their canaries, must call a friend of confidence that can help advise, giving you some tips for however their future choice. In our choice we have to consider the sentences of the wings and tail, booting those who are departing, that new born, these sentences that take us 35 days normally grow up completely. If they cages of exposure the better. During the change is fundamental put baths, if possible every day. Still putting baths in each cage, it must return to days that the water twice, not put anything in the water, they prefer clean water, only once a week mix a bit of shampoo from neutral ph (some lose the will to go to the bath). Some 4 or 5 days before each exposure should withdraw baths, for plumage based and dry completely. The food has to be balanced, avoiding over-seed fat, they can cause obesity, I give only canary grass seed to germinate and mix will papa, adding a little dye, (canthaxanthina, beta-carotene and carophyll), should be added also some próbioticos, to help assimilation and mitigate the effect of the dye in the liver. (usually give a portfolio a day of UL-250, I by in any pharmacy, we will choose them n) In selecting the canaries for the exposure, we must have into account the following aspects: On melaninas should enhance your design is in different parts of the body (head, back, chest and flanks), taking attention to the type, class and sex canary. We must take account of the pigmentation of the beak, legs, fingers and nails. Taking into account the oxidation of melaninas, to its color, contrast and design, as will the presence feomelanina factor and the optical refractive. The plumagem must be completely uniform, glossy and footprint to the body. The changes should be fully completed. The quality and cleanliness of penalties give a signal to the healthy canary. The intensity and brightness of the lipochrome must be spread throughout the body, should not be patches of different tones. The optimum size is: 14cm, measured from the tip of the beak to the end of the tail. (May be penalized from 1cm more or less). The form must be commensurate with the size, everything must be in harmony, having regard to the head, beak, the back, chest, to the wings, tail and will ace feet (must have all their fingers, not make scales and not have very large nails. It is a very important position that presents canary in the cage and should be calm, without knocking over the wings, should go in gredjo without being apathetic (gentle at the time of trial). We can not forget the washers, only one, and the creator of the stam. Transport of canaries for the competition is also important, we must have cages themselves, not forgetting to put a good absorbent in the background. For those who still do not have a level sufficient knowledge to choose the best copies to expose, it is usually easier to get a premium for teams. To compete with teams, it should create with several couples of the same race, choosing those most similar, given the harmony. choose Usually 5, and the day's take - them, choose the 4 who are in better physical condition.
