Show info

We are welcoming more and more foreign participants on our show. To make things easier you will find a bunch of information on this page. In case you still have questions feel free to ask and send an email to

Registration form

You can bring as much birds as you want to our show. With our digital registration form you can register the birds you want to show. Keep in mind this is a Dutch form. For the translation of the Dutch names to English names you can take a look at the table below. In case you are in doubt you can send an email to us and we will try to help you. Keep in mind we got a busy time in the last days of the registration time so contact us early.

Cage rental and numbers

It is mandatory for every foreign participant to rent a cage, except for the Belgium participants. The rentalcost for one cage is 1 euro. After your registration we don’t send you the cage numbers by postal services, they will be available at the show. Our team will help you with caging the birds in the show. We got a special room for exchanging the bird from your transport cage to the show cage.

Place to stay

Some of our participants will stay the whole week in the Netherlands, some come by car and fly back home and park their car at the airport. If you are looking to stay the whole week, we recommand to rent a house on one of the holiday parks we have in the Netherlands. In 30 minutes you will find ‘Topparken het Esmeer’. We have heard good recommandations from other participants for this park.


With the changing laws throughout Europe we are also facing extra regulations and obstacles for all participants. We want to do it well and follow the rules and laws we are facing. Unfortunately we don’t know the rules for bird transportation per individual country. Even here in the Netherlands some parts are still vague. We have good contacts to anticipate quickly when rules are changed and we will update you as soon as possible. We would like to have you as a participant so we put some information together for you.
– Traces form, the birds will be returning to your home, but to transport them some country’s ask for a Traces form. Every country gets its own rules about Traces, you should verify by your own government or National Bird Organization how this works for you. Keep in my mind, the birds will return to your home. If you have a TRACES or otherkind of Transportation form we will be happy to receive a copy when we cage your birds into the show.
– Export form
If you bring birds to the selling class, you probably need an export form including a health check by your own government or veterinarian. Also for this point, you need to check this with your own government or National Bird Organisation.
Dead birds
In case of a dead bird the organisation of the show will only keep the ring of the bird and will hand it to you when we cage out the birds. If you facing any check from Customs or other autority, you still can show all the amount of birds you have brought to the show.

We’ve got a UBN number for you which you can use. The number is 7593439. This number can be also used in your TRACES document

Selling cages

If you want to sell birds, we offer the possibility to rent free selling cages. For every 4 birds you send to the show, you can have 1 selling cages with maximum of 4 birds in 1 selling cage. The NZC gets 10% comission for every bird you put up to sale. So if you put 1 pair in the selling cages  and ask 40 euro for a pair, the NZC gets a comission of 4 euro. It doesn’t matter if you sell the birds on the show or not.
