An Open Show is open to anyone to enter.
The main reason for benching birds at shows is to let breeders compete. However, there is much more to budgerigar shows than that. They provide a meeting place for fanciers. Some will be on the lookout for new stock. Others look forward to seeing old friends who they meet as little as once a year.
No matter how experienced a Budgerigar exhibitor may be, winning his or her first rosette is a memory that lives with them forever. By joining The Budgerigar Society, you can play a full part in budgerigar shows and take the initial step towards winning your first rosette.
