Show and Tell Bird Show San Diego California

What a fantastic show! It is a very friendly club that is focused on education and sharing.

David Benites, President, show manager and club founder, is pictured in the tall hat.

David Shared the following tips with me:

1. To increase feather luster feed thistle (nyger).

2. When preparing birds for show be sure and change all perches and grills so that the bird will not soil itself after bathing.

3. Ten days before the show let all birds bath in treated bath water. Treated Bath Water: To 1/2 gallon of water add 1 cap of Listerine or generic and 1 teaspoon  witch hazel. Every 20 minutes change the bowl water four times.

4. His wife Edith shared that when cooking quinoa (keen-wah), to six cups of quinoa add 7 cups of water instead of the 2 times water as quinoa that I had been using. Her quinoa texture is excellent. She called it the plus one rule.
