SPBE Pointed Bird Show & Seminar
Helping Your Parrot Look its Very Best!
This sojourn into the world of exhibition parrots, cockatiels, lovebirds and budgies examines the art and science of showing parrots. The origin of competition,
comparison  of livestock, and positive benefits of exhibiting are discussed as an art form to improving type, standards and improvement of future generations. The
science of exhibition is examined by looking at show standards that influence the genetics and future of livestock and their genotypes. Practical information is
presented on the show training and grooming of birds, how to prepare for shows, and what it takes to make a champion or grand-champion exhibit. From
classifications to show mechanics through to the judging process, this program will make showing much more fun and easier to understand. See some of the top
parrots exhibited around the USA!  As a Certified Panel Judge for the Society of Parrot Breeders & Exhibitors, and the Cockatiel Foundation (and a former NCS &
NAPS Panel Judge), Linda S. Rubin has judged in the USA, Puerto Rico and Canada since 1984 - including parrots at the 1996 National Cage Bird Show -
authored show standards, and advises potential exhibitors how to improve their chances of winning on the show bench.  Whether you already show birds or are
simply curious, bring your parrot, cockatiel, lovebird or budgie, to learn how to properly condition and prepare your bird to look its very best year round!
