In raising birds, we must have hopes, even dreams. The first thing we hope is that the birds we keep and have a voice with competitive quality. This can be a source of pride, especially if dreams come true. Namely when someday the transfer price of our beloved bird can reach tens of millions or even hundreds of millions of rupiah after becoming a champion subscription in various competitions.
However, caring for a bird so that it has a myriad of achievements is not an easy matter and cannot be conjured up in a day or two. Birds are raised and started to be trained from the time they are caught or from captivity. In a competition, no matter how good it sounds, the judges or other bird hobbyists do not necessarily glimpse it. As a result, the selling value of birds cannot immediately skyrocket. To achieve a high transfer value, a beloved bird must go through various tests by participating in various competitions, so that it can be seen that the bird really has a mental steel and is not a carbon.
Birds that perform well are usually not birds that are still “first-hand”. The bird may have changed owners 5-10 times and passed 4-5 moulting periods, and undergo training with different master patterns so that the transfer value increases slowly but surely.
Then, how do you train that bird with the right master pattern so that it becomes a superior bird? Profits in the world of confinement usually rest on people who have the diligence and expertise in “smelling” the special talents of each bird. Usually, just by looking at the figure and the sound, those with “sharp noses” are able to determine the quality of the bird later in life.
For example, to get a sufficiently reliable canary contest, one of them must pay attention to his posture. The body should be long, flawless, agile, and beautifully colored. The voice that is sung must be long, loud, varied, and do not stop halfway through. And, it has a strong response to the sound of other walnuts, so that it screams its singing sound.
In its treatment, every bird must receive perfect care. Each type of bird has different characteristics, both food, cage, and training system. This is because mistakes in just feeding can have fatal consequences for the development of sound quality. With the wrong care, the chirping bird will have unexpected qualities.
