Differences Lampung, Medan Shama's compared to normal?

Postby rivangom » Thu Jun 13, 2013 3:53 pm

Dear bird friends,

I live in the Netherlands and also having Shama's. Since most of birds are caged here and by own breed there's a discussion about the Lampung and Medan Shama's that are once a while offered on the bird markets. Here in the Netherlands the Lampung Shama is considered as large, shorter tale, larger feet all compared to the normal Shama's. The Medan is also considered as large but with a longer tale. This at least the way you see some are advertised for selling.

I would like to know if there are people on this forum that can tell by heart the differences between the Lampung, Medan Shama's compared to the normal small sized Shama's.

See below attached pictures and the way they are defined by the owners and tell me if this is correct.

Many thanks for your comments and advise.

Regards,
Robbert

i believed the different isnt based on its body size or shorter tale..

here at my hometown Medan North Sumatera,, we use it tale's pattern as a first point to notice where thats shama belong..

aceh, medan, lampung, borneo, and malaysian shama has its own tales pattern..

here's some picture to show you the different..
