I have now added the owners to their pictures

Thanks to all those who put forward their birds and too the time to vote for their favourite.

Below are the comments made by Ghalib Al-Nasser who was kind enough to judge the birds  

May I congratulate our members who entered those 8 birds for the 2021 Photo Competition. Although the birds were not prepared for the show well I put quality first when judging those birds and my placing is as follows:

1st  Bird 2 – Spangle Grey cock – nice all round bird with good width of head and shoulder.

2nd – Bird 1 – Grey cock  this would have been my choice for the winner as it is a powerful bird with very nice head quality but from the 3 photos it looks as if it had missing flights on the right wing.

3rd – Bird 4  Spangle Opaline Skyblue hen – very useful quality hen with good width of head and shoulder but because it is an opaline the spangle marking was not as good.

I also liked Bird 8 (Opaline Cinnamon Skyblue cock) which had shoulder width that is very desirable.

Once again congratulations to our members who managed to put these birds up for the competition.
