9 Faulty Moves for Dolapcı

There 9 moves the fanciers of Dolapcı breed look at as the fundamental failures in a bird.
Under no circumstances a bird or it's young or it's young's babies display any one of these moves during flight are considered to be a pure Dolapcı.
Almost all of these moves or behaviors are signature moves of other performing breeds and quiet a few of them come from Ottoman Rollers (the breed known as the Oriental Roller in the west).
Most of the time these behaviors tend to get mixed up into lofts of Dolapcıs when a new breeder is brought in and it's family tree includes a Kosovo or Selanik bird.
Especially Kosovo birds tend to bring in Oriental roller moves since that breed was used in the creation of the Kosovos.
9th move tends to come out from birds with Selanik (Salonika) in their blood.

1- Sitting or tail-riding: Simplest move to notice. If the bird is left alone with it's mate in the yard or the rooftop, when flown it will clap wings and sit on its tail or ride its tail during flight.

2- Stretching: It is basically half of a tail-riding move.

3- Semi-Rolling: During flight the bird goes into a sluggish roll like spin.

4- Rolling: During flight the bird displays a roll similar to what rollers do.

5- Raking or Gliding: In an obvious fashion the bird rides on it's wings with out flapping, most of the time the wings are in the shape of "V"
during this glide.

6- Locking: During flight the bird starts performing and while spinning in a standard manner all of a sudden like someone just pushed it's off button it freezes, some can not get out of this lock and crash.

7- Propelling: With wings open or half open or one of them half open, the bird spins on its tummy like a spinning plate (wing , tail and beak tips being the rim of the plate) with a very slow velocity and almost flopping (skipping motion not a complete full circle) and loose altitude doing so, some can not get out of this and crash.

8- Strait spining: During flight all of a sudden the bird starts climbing or gaining altitude and at one point try to turn back like it wants to go back towards the direction it has been coming from but something similar to bird not being able to make this transition and its struggle is observed.

9- Getting Caught: If there are other fanciers around your loft, loosing birds to them.

At this time of year i dont get to fly my birds nearly enough with work and the dark nights but as soon as i get them flying regular again i will try to video them for you to see. I watched the film and my birds dont display anything like the birds there.

We'll ask İskender to critique them for you if you like.

Then again if those moves are not present I think you are good to go.
