Recognizing Condition Through the 3 Dimensional Effect

KEEP IN MIND AS YOU READ AND STUDY THIS THAT YOU ARE GETTING THE KNOWLEDGE OF BEING ABLE TO PICK YOUR BREEDERS AND FLYERS WITH MY THREE DIMENSIONAL EFFECT (3/D EFFECT), HERE AFTER CALLED "3/D".

WHEN YOU FIRST START TO TRAIN IF YOU NOT ONLY LOOK AT BUT DOCUMENT WHAT YOU SEE IN THE EYES OF EACH BIRD YOU WILL SEE WITH YOUR OWN EYES THE PROGRESS THAT IS BEING MADE AS THE BIRDS COME TO THEIR PEAK CONDITION.

ALWAYS REMEMBER TO CHECK BOTH EYES.  YOU WILL ALWAYS GRADE TO THE WORST EYE AND NOT THE BEST.

KEEP IN MIND THAT WITH PRACTICE YOU WILL BECOME VERY PROFICIENT IN KNOWING WHEN EACH BIRD IS COMING "INTO" OR "OUT" OF CONDITION.

THIS IS DONE BY OBSERVATION OF THE FOLLOWING:

1.  THE OUTER CIRCLE OR HEALTH RING OR 5th CIRCLE - THE DEPTH OF COLOR OF IT WILL ALSO CHANGE TO SHOW YOU THAT THE BIRD IS COMING INTO FORM.

2.  THE IRIS CLARITY  AND THE DEPTH OF COLOR - LOOKING FOR AND SEEING THE MOUNTAINS AND VALLEYS IN  THE IRIS

3.  THE CIRCLE OF CORRELATION (1st STEP DOWN FROM IRIS)

  • WATCHING THE CIRCLE OF CORRELATION AS IT BECOMES MORE DENSE, IT CAN HAVE LITTLE RIDGES IN ITS WIDTH WHICH RESEMBLE A MOUNTAIN RANGE.
  • C/C IS A "STEP DOWN" FROM THE BUILT UP IRIS. THIS STEP DOWN FROM THE IRIS IS THE FIRST SIGN OF 3/D EFFECT YOU SHOULD WATCH FOR.
  • SPEED LINES WHICH RUN DIAGONALLY ACROSS THE C/C INDICATE FASTER BIRDS.
  • LONG DISTANCE LINES WHICH RUN CONCENTRICALLY IN THE C/C, OR AS LINES IN A CIRCLE, WITHIN THE CIRCLE ITSELF INDICATE BIRDS THAT WILL DO THE DISTANCE - FOR 12 TO 14 HOURS WITHOUT TOO MUCH STRESS.
  • SOME BIRDS HAVE A COMBINATION OF BOTH LINES IN THE SAME EYE.
  • SIZE OF C/C CAN BE FROM EXTREMELY NARROW TO EXTREMELY WIDE (WIDER THE BETTER) FOR BREEDER OR FLYER. WIDEST WOULD BE BEST KEPT FOR BREEDERS AFTER THEY HAVE PROVEN THEMSELVES ON THE ROAD.

4. THE CIRCLE OF ADAPTATION IS NEXT IN LINE BEFORE THE PUPIL (2nd STEP DOWN FROM IRIS)

  • ANOTHER STEP DOWN FROM THE C/C.
  • IT IS USUALLY JET BLACK, BUT CAN BE GREENISH OR GRAYISH BLACK AS WELL.
  • IT IS NORMALLY DIFFICULT TO SEE WITH THE NAKED EYE.
  • EYE LOUPE OF A LEAST 12X POWER SHOULD BE USED IN BRIGHT SUN LIGHT.
    AT THE SAME TIME OF DAY AND PREFERABLY 10 AM TO 2 PM.
  • ALSO COMES IN MANY VARIATIONS OF SIZE & SHAPE.
  • SHAPE OF C/A CAN VARY ALONG THE EDGES OF CIRCLE.  IT CAN BE SMOOTH, WRINKLED (BOTTLE CAP AS SOME WOULD CALL IT), TEAR DROP, AND PLAIN OR WITH A COMBINATION TEAR DROP WITH OBLIQUE LINES IN BETWEEN EACH TEAR DROP, " CALLED BEADS & TEARS".
     

5.  THE PUPIL IS NEXT IN LINE (3rd STEP DOWN FROM IRIS)

  • BEING AS SMALL AND ROUND AS POSSIBLE WHEN BEING LOOKED AT IN BRIGHT SUN LIGHT.  IF IT DOES NOT "FLEX" & "DILATE" IT IS OF NO VALUE.  THIS IS CALLED A ''WORKING PUPIL".  THE UTMOST VALUE FOR BREEDING AND FLYING.
  • THE OTHER THING TO LOOK FOR IN THE PUPIL IS "CLUSTERS".  THESE ARE TINY DOTS OF "GOLD OR SILVER" DEPENDING ON THE EYE COLOR.  SILVER FOR PEARL EYES AND GOLD FOR ALL EYES OF RED, YELLOW OR BROWN FAMILIES.  SOME CLUSTERS ARE VERY SMALL CONSISTING OF JUST A FEW DOTS OF GOLD OR SILVER, WHERE OTHERS ARE SO LARGE THEY CAN BE SEEN WITHOUT LOUPE.
  • PUPIL TWITCH DENOTES A HIGH STRUNG SPEED BIRD.  IT GIVES YOU THE IMPRESSION THAT THE WHOLE EYE IS JUMPING IN ITS SOCKET.
  • STANDING AND LYING SIGHT IS WHERE DUST IS FOUND ( MULTI-COLORED FLAKES). THE DARKER LOWER PORTIONS OF THE EYE IS THE BEST PLACE TO START LOOKING.  IT COMES IN COLORS BLUE / GREEN / GOLD AND IS RECOGNIZED BY VERY MINUTE PIN POINT DOTS.  THIS ALONG WITH THE BUILD UP OF THE REST OF THE EYE SHOWS YOU THAT YOUR BIRDS ARE COMING INTO FORM.
  • THE LYING AND STANDING SIGHT CAN BE USED TO DETECT FORM BY WATCHING CHANGES IN SHADES OF GRAYISH BLACK GOING TO A DEEP AND DARKER BLACK AS THE BIRD COMES INTO TOP FORM.  AS YOU SEE THESE CHANGES YOU WILL SEE MORE DUST.  LIKE THE CLUSTER, DUST MOVES AND FLOATS IN LOWER PORTION OF EYE.
  • IF YOU FIND THAT YOU HAVE A BIRD WITH "DUST" IN THE WHOLE EYE, INCLUDING THE IRIS, YOU HAVE A GOLD MINE AS A BREEDER OF WINNERS.
