Whilst spending time in the breeding room, selecting the birds for pairing up, and watching the success of breeding great birds, is very enjoyable, until the birds are judged against other breeders birds, the true level of success as an exhibitor/breeder is not known.
The selection and pairing is what leeds to breeding those winning birds. It is basically at least a 12 month process from start to finish.
And when the success on the bench of all that selection, planning, and husbandry comes to fruition at a show, then this adds to the satisfaction and enjoyment of the hobby.
