So you have heard and read all you can about exhibiting your cockatiels. People are saying...just do it!
You will want to study the ACS Standard.
Check the Show Calendar for upcoming shows!!!
Being prepared will make your showing experience much more enjoyable. You can fill out your show form early. If your showing Novice, check your bands against the Advance Band Code List. If there is an advanced band in your list, that bird(s) must be shown in the advanced division but this will not affect your status as a Novice Exhibitor.
You will need the ACS Classes in order to complete your show paperwork.
Now your watching the show...The judge probably explained what they are looking for and how they utilize the ACS Point Standard.
The show is over now and your birds have placed on top bench! WAY-TO-GO!!!!! You want to figure out how many points they received. To do this, you will need to refer to the ACS Show Point Schedule & Definitions.
