Glad you are finding the blogs interesting...Thanks for your votes...I hope to make it to the Castle...V4U..Sorry about not getting my campaign blog out earlier but Mom had some appointments today...Today I will talk about Future Trends....The growing interest in cockatiels stems partly from the development of the various colors.Whereas several colors of budgerigar are known to have been seen first in flocks in Australia,no mutation of the cockatiel has ever been recorded from the wild.In their native habitat,cockatiels range widely over frequently inhospitable terrain in search of food and water.They have evolved their powerful flight to enable them to cover these large distances;at the same time,their rapid and high reproductive capacity is an essential ingredient for the survival of the species in a region where rainfall-and therefore a supply of grasses and other green food-can be highly unpredictable.At present, the natural appearance of the cockatiel has been little altered by selective breeding, in noticeable contrast to the budgerigar.However,this could change quite rapidly as increasing numbers of cockatiels are exhibited.Should the trend favor larger cockatiels on the show bench,then breeders will obviously aim to conform to such requirements.This carries with it a risk that the natural grace and elegance of the cockatiel will be lost in a stampede for size in exhibition birds.Thankfully, this does not appear to be the case at present,but the risk remains,especially while there are no official standards for exhibition cockatiels laid down in many countries......Hope your Thursday has been a nice one...Many birdie wing hugs...Sam :o)
