2006 National Cage Bird Show Winners

The November 2006 National Cage Bird Show was hosted by the Greater Chicago Cage Bird Club.

The 58th Annual National Cage Bird Show was held at the newly opened Renaissance Schaumburg Hotel & Convention Center in Illinois.

2006 NCBSAs the largest U.S. bird show, NCBS has categories for nearly every type of canary and finch, as well parrots and softbills. Judges fly in from around the world, and awards give breeders bragging rights and heightened interest in their stock.

Higgins Premium Pet Foods sponsors the event, which includes a youth essay contest. Each division winner receives a Higgins’ trophy. Higgins has been involved with NCBS for nearly three decades and the main sponsor since 2002.
