Booking in

Show Manager

·        Should allocate stewards

·        Should explain judging method to the judges

 Stewards

·        There should be a chief steward for each judge

·        There should be at least two other stewards preferably three but obviously dependant on the number of birds per judge

Stewarding

·        The chief steward should be the only person to go behind the judging stand.

·        When a class has been judged the chief steward should offer to read out the class positions whilst the judge marks his judging book

·        Other stewards should not congregate in the line of sight of the judge

·        Where possible always have the next class ready so that the judge is not standing idle

·        Make sure second, third etc prize cards are securely affixed to the cage when returned to the staging

·        Put birds back on the staging with prize winners on the middle row, in order, leaving a space for the first prize winner

 Judging for Specials

·        Show Manager plus Chief  Stewards to sort out birds

·        Judging using the ‘colour method’

·        Arrange birds so that each colour section can be judged by all judges i.e. put four clear classes together and judge first to fourth. Same with variegated, heavily variegated, cinnamon variegated, greens, cinnamons and allied to white.

·        This will give seven birds.

·        The judges then pick their best from these. Depending on which bird wins, the second in the colour line up is placed with the other six birds and the second best bird selected.

·        The second best is replaced with it’s colour runner up and the third best selected.

·        This is carried on until the desired number of birds have been selected.

In theory the four clear birds could take the four best awards.

This is carried out for both sections, champion and novice.

The best champion and the best novice are then compared for best in show.
