It was a really good show this year and I was very happy
how my birds performed. :D The Waikato show is next and it's the
last show here on the North Island for this year.
How was the show season on the South Island this year ?

I only went to Ashburton and Christchurch Shows and my birds did well, too. Ashburton had its 125th show with lots of extra prizes and there were over 1000 entries.

Christchurch will have its 150th Anniversary show in a year's time. It will also be NZ's National Show so hopefully it will be a good one.

I've heard that the Ashburton show was a great success. I'm quite keen to come to
Christchurch next year if the timing works out for me. I might even show some birds
if I can work out how to get them down.

Jay was investigating whether it was cost effective to send birds to Chch via Air NZ, but I suspect their requirements for the cages will make it too expensive (they won't take the plastic cat carry cage type of things) - but if it was possible, there might be an Auckland bulk group being sent (one carrier suggested it was cheaper to hire a trailer & get someone to drive all the birds down together)

A consignment from Auckland would be great :D There usually are cheap flights for people on Grabaseat early in the year as there are no school holidays.
