The Exhibition organized by CZAC is the biggest exhibition of agapornises in the Czech Republic. In the past years was possible to see over 300 birds including about 200 evaluated kinds and mutations. It is not only the members of the Club but also breeders from the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Poland, who are not the members of the club. It is possible to see even little widespread mutations. Visitors come from the nearby area even from several hundred kilometers distant areas. In short, a special show of our club is the largest agapornis event in the Czech Republic.

The best birds will get diplomas in their groups, bands will be given to the best birds in each class and kind. The winning agapornis will receive a cup of their kind.

The next day, on Saturday 29th September the exhibition is opened for public from 9:00 to 15:00. The part of the exhibition is also sales section, were the exhibitors offer their birds, available for sale during the opening hours. Even the birds from the Exhibition will be available for sale (marked in catalog or on the crate), but such birds will be available for withdrawal from 14:30. They can be booked during the Exhibition. This prevents disappearing of the exposed birds and to have empty cages during the Exhibition.
The Exhibition is divided into 3 classes:
- CLASS A – agapornises bred in 2017
- CLASS B – agapornises 2016 and older
- CLASS M – agapornises bred in this year (2018)
- CLASS N – undefined agapornises, new or non-classified mutations or their combinations
The agapornises are divided by the age into these main classes: Class A - agapornis breeding in the previous year, ie. with the ring of last year (2017), Class B - agapornis, older than agapornis in class A, ie. with a ring 2016, 2015, etc. Class M - agapornis bred in the year of the exhibition, ie. with the current 2018 ring.
Three best birds will be chosen from the class B (1st -3rd place of class B). The same is valid for the class M (1st -3rd place of class M). And again first 3 best birds will be chosen from the class A, but these 3 best agapornises are on the overall winners of the whole show. Class A is further subdivided into the individual species in which the best agapornis of the species are declared. The individual species can then (but not necessarily) be divided into Exhibition groups (according to the mutation -> Exhibition group) - For the announcement of individual groups, a minimum number of 5 agapornis of the same classification is required, from min. 3 exhibitors.
Class N is also used - it includes non-standard agapornis (unrecognized or new mutations and their combinations).
Class A – the obligation to have your own scoring wooden cage (see Exhibition Rules)
Class B – the obligation to have your own scoring wooden cage (see Exhibition Rules)
Class M – the obligation to have your birds in cartoon scoring cage, provided by the organizer (see Exhibition Rules)
Agapornises is possible to expose only in the standard scoring cages with the dimensions 16 - 18 cm depth, 36 cm width, 30 cm height (see Exhibition Rules). The birds placed in different cages will not be accepted for the Exhibition. Such cages however can be used in the Sales section. Cartoon cages for the class M will be arranged by the organizer, it is mandatory to specify number of the cartoon cages in the application according to your needs.
It is necessary to fill in own application form for the sale section. The breeder will provide the required data (ring number, type, mutation or combination and price). If known, it may also include breakage and gender. Agapornis are placed in the scoring cage essentially one by one. Non-standard scoring cages can also be used for the sales part. The exhibitor can only offer as many agapornis as he has in the show section in the sales section.
The exhibition obeys the Exhibition regulation, which includes all important information. Every agapornis breeder can expose his birds on the Exhibition, regardless of the Club membership or nationality. Breeders have the opportunity to compare their breeds objectively among each other. It does not matter whether you start with or take care of it for dozens of years - the exhibition is about meeting breeders who are looking for quality agapornis breeds, about the best prize winners and less successful find out what to watch out for and what to avoid. Everyone can move. Every agapornis must have a closed ring - kind, mutation, or agapornis age does not matter..
